Huntley, Montana is perched in Yellowstone County 10 miles north of Billings along the mighty Yellowstone River. What originally was a predominantly agriculturally based town, Huntley today is primarily thought of as a suburb of the big city of Billings, offering a slower-paced and more peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle. A mere 15 miles from Billings allows residents to still enjoy the conveniences and amenities of the city as well as a feasible commute. Furthermore, cost of living is lower than in Billings which is a likely contribution to a growth of 50% since 2000.
The booming city of Billings, Montana is rapidly growing making sure to keep the title of the largest city in Montana. As county seat of Yellowstone County, it is considered to be the trade and distribution center for much of the state, east of the Continental Divide, northern Wyoming, and western portions of North and South Dakota. Billings has superb shopping, delicious dining, and boisterous breweries. The city offers a range of recreational activities with 45 miles of multi-use trails for biking, hiking, or dog-walking.

The Yellowstone River and Premiere Blue-Ribbon Fishing
This constant, unwavering river flows throughout the Yellowstone River corridor just as it has for centuries: in its natural state. It has not been dammed nor tamed and is the longest, free flowing river as such in the lower 48 states. It meanders through a variety of scenery and various topographies from steep canyon walls to lazily flowing through farm country. Its fresh, clean waters provide fishing, floating, swimming, and rafting. The nutrient rich areas surrounding the river are a paradise for wildlife making hunting especially good as well. Enjoy viewing wildlife such as bald eagles, elk, white-tailed deer, and black bears. Certainly, you will want to take advantage of the world class fishing known internationally. These premiere trout waters produce an abundance of big trout and native Yellowstone cutthroat trout. In the upper half of the river, species found are cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, large whitefish, and brown trout. In the lower half or warmer waters, species found are large walleye, catfish, and sturgeon. The beauty of fishing the Yellowstone River is its length and ample space. Anglers are not crowded with others and have the length of the river to spread out. The beautiful landscape encompassing the banks really enhance the whole experience. Dry fly fishing is excellent as well as sub-surface fishing with nymphs and streamers. The section from Big Timber to Billings, where this property is located, is the least heavily used. In this portion of the river, waders and anglers likely are alone and can take delight in the Absaroka Mountains on the skyline to the south.
