Five Rivers Lodge

Montana Fly Fishing Lodge

Five Rivers Lodge is situated on 28 acres in Southwest Montana, between the small college town of Dillon and Twin Bridges in the Beaverhead Valley. This mountainous section of the Lewis and Clark trail is open year-round for fly fishing and the rivers and streams are among the last uncrowded blue-ribbon fisheries in the country.


About Five Rivers Lodge


Fly Fish Five Montana Rivers

Rainbow Trout

Five Rivers Lodge fishes five Montana rivers, plus private spring creeks and ponds that receive little fishing pressure. The names are legendary for the big trout they hold—the upper and lower section of the Beaverhead, the Big Hole, Jefferson River, Ruby, Red Rock, and a number of smaller but very productive creeks and ponds.

Private Access Waters

Private Access Waters

You’ll also fish privately-owned waters with very limited access. Private access waters are an additional $100.00 per person per day. Very large brown trout inhabit the rivers and spring creeks. Anglers regularly hook eight to ten fish a day over 20.” Private waters are divided into seven sections, and two anglers are allowed to fish each section only once every seven days. Very large brown trout inhabit the rivers and spring creeks. Many 24” to 26” long.
