Fishing

Flowing right through the Mission Ranch is the Yellowstone River (the longest free-flowing river in the contiguous United States), Mission Creek, and our own private natural Spring Creek Fishery–all teeming with prize-winning brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout.

All fishing on the ranch is reserved exclusively for Mission Ranch Lodge guests for no additional fee.

 

YELLOWSTONE RIVER

Guests will enjoy 3 miles of exclusive Yellowstone River frontage with excellent wade fishing throughout the property. Simply sit back, relax, and wait for the trout to rise.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – 3 miles

RODS/DAY – 10

DIFFICULTY – Moderate

TERRAIN – A fast flowing river with deep pockets and shallow rocky areas; Great place to practice casting and improve skills while looking for a fish of a lifetime.

 

MISSION CREEK

The Mission Creek runs parallel to Mission Creek Road and offers 8 miles of exclusive premium fly-fishing for up to ten rods/day. For those with the right skills, the creek boasts beautiful, prize-winning trout. But be warned: the terrain is tricky. Only the more advanced fishermen prevail.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – 8 miles

RODS/DAY – 10

DIFFICULTY – Advanced

TERRAIN – Foliage, overgrowth, and tall trees make casting difficult. For best results, avoid banks and simply fish from the middle of the creek.

 

SPRING CREEK FISHERY

Our ¾ mile natural spring creek fishery has been developed and fenced and is capable of handling 4 rods/day. Prize trout lurk in the pools of this pristine spring creek, but they may see you coming. This very technical fishing spot requires long leaders and light tippet.

LENGTH OF ACCESS – ¾ miles

RODS/DAY – 4

DIFFICULTY – Challenging

TERRAIN – Open and easily traversable; mossy areas; slow moving water in places
