Premier Fishing and Hunting
There is one entity that draws thousands of visitors from all around the world and that is the fishing. This section of the Missouri is known for its Blue-Ribbon Trout fishing. These waters are filled with nutrients from the cold tail-waters from the bottom of Holter Dam creating a smorgasbord of feed for those finicky fish. As a result, the population of rainbow and brown trout surge averaging at about 7000+ fish per mile of river. These fish are frequently greater than 10 inches in length! The river is a playground offering year-round fishing. In addition to the plethora of fishing access sites along Interstate 15, there are numerous streams and creeks in the area to tackle. Holter Lake is a short 15-minute drive up above Holter Dam and is home to the “Gates of the Mountains.” From there, Hauser Lake and Canyon Ferry Lake also provide excellent fishing and boating. The central location of the lodge puts you in the middle of tremendous hunting opportunities and within two hours of anything else. The avid hunter can pursue big game animals including White-tailed and Mule Deer, elk, antelope, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Mountain Lions, and Black Bear. Upland birds and waterfowl also provide excellent prospects. Montana offers millions of acres of public lands for which to roam and hunt on as well as diverse habitats providing homes to the many different species of wildlife.
