Big Hole Lodge

Southwestern Montana’s premier trout fishing lodge for over 30 years

Exclusively represented by Frontiers, Craig and Wade Fellin’s Big Hole Lodge is clearly defined as one of the great fly fishing destinations in North America. The wild trophy trout fishing possibilities are unmatched in the West, along with the unpressured fishing experience of Southwestern Montana. This Orvis Endorsed lodge is nestled in a magnificent wilderness setting in the Pioneer Mountains with a beautiful trout stream at its doorstep. For 25+ years, our returning guests have raved about the well-prepared meals, the attractive accommodations and the exceptional guides.

Fishing

With multiple rivers accessible, guests will fish a wide variety of water, practicing small stream tactics and long-reaching casts on larger water for brown trout, rainbows, brookies and cutthroats. Much of the fishing is conducted by floating; however, anglers will be wading the smaller water.

Accommodation

Big Hole Lodge accommodates 8-12 in 3 spacious multi-bedroom private cabins with modern conveniences; all open to a panoramic view of the scenic Wise River Valley. The main lodge is the perfect place to relax over a cocktail while enjoying spectacular mountain views and unforgettable meals.

Gear

We will provide a complete gear list. The lodge also has a fly shop on-site. We like 4- to 6-weight rods (depending on the streams you are fishing) with floating lines. Be sure to bring quality raingear, polarized sunglasses, waders and a hat for sun protection. Dress in layers!

Trip Specifics

The lodge typically operates on a 6-night/5-day program with Saturday arrival, 5 full days of guided fly fishing Sunday through Thursday, and departure the following Friday. Shorter packages are available upon request and availability. Guests are met at the Butte Airport and transferred south to the lodge (approx. 45 mins). Clients can also opt to fly to Helena, Bozeman or Missoula (all about 2 hours away), rent a car and drive to the lodge. The lodge also welcomes nonfishing companions who can enjoy the beauty of the region and varied activities.

Rates

The season runs early April - mid-October.

Rates quoted below are per-person based on double occupancy/shared guide. Single rates and quotes for shorter packages will be quoted on request.
