Bar Z Riverside Ranch offers world class Montana fly-fishing trips on more then 10,000 acres of a working Montana cattle ranch. Gain exclusive access to more then 25 miles of private water including 10 miles of Sheep Creek, 3.5 miles of the famed Upper Smith River, 3 miles of the North Fork of the Smith, and not to mention a private lake. These four bodies of water are a cut above Montana “blue-ribbon” fishing. We also offer some other private waters exclusive to the Bar Z. In addition we offer full-day float trips off the ranch on the Yellowstone River, Madison River, and Missouri River for yet another terrific fishing option. Our professionally guided trips will take you through some of Montana’s most scenic terrain where you’ll be able to catch wild rainbow trout, native Montana cutthroat, brook trout, and big browns. A trip includes a stay at our rustic Montana cabin, which comes with all of the necessary amenities, fine country dining, and unequaled relaxation under Montana’s famed big sky. If you want to experience world class fly-fishing and a rustic cabin as your home base then the Bar Z Riverside Ranch is waiting for you.
You won’t find a more authentic experience than a stay in our Montana fishing cabin. It’s a real cow camp/fishing cabin that our family has used as a summer-home base for years. With all of the essential amenities, you’ll feel like your staying in you very own Montana fishing lodge.
Before Fly Fishing Montana, find all of Montana’s fishing regulations and purchase a Montana fishing license prior to your trip on the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks online licensing system. This will save you valuable time so you’ll be able to get right on the stream the moment you arrive.
