The Bar Z Riverside Ranch


Bar Z Riverside Ranch offers guests the opportunity to fish on more than 30+ miles of private waters that meander through 10,000 acres of incredible scenery. As a guest on our working cattle ranch you’ll have access to an array of water including 8+ miles along the famed Upper Smith River, 3 miles along the North Fork of the Smith, 14+ miles along Sheep Creek, and access to our private 9 acre lake. These four bodies of water are a cut above Montana “blue-ribbon” fishing. If you want to experience world class fly-fishing in a tranquil and dynamic setting, Bar Z is the spot for you. Come enjoy paradise. Relax under the Big Sky. Fish to your heart’s content.

Bar Z is situated centrally in southwestern Montana within a few hours from four of the more well-known rivers that course through the state. As so, full-day float trips on the Yellowstone, Madison, and Missouri Rivers are available upon request. These professionally guided trips course through some of Montana’s most scenic landscape where you’ll have the opportunity to hook wild rainbow trout, native Montana cutthroat, brook trout, and big browns.

Bar Z Riverside Ranch is operated by John Hanson Outfitting/Mountain Tech Industies. 5320
