Madison Valley Ranch

Situated on the banks of the Madison River just 3 miles north of Ennis, the location of Madison Valley Ranch offers anglers unparalleled access to all the best blue-ribbon fly fishing in southwestern Montana. A short walk out the back door will find you casting to rising fish in the famous “Channels” section of the Madison, fighting large, feisty trout on our private two acre pond, or stalking Jack Creek as it runs through the property. Daily float trips with professional guides on the varied sections of the Madison River keep experts challenged and novices thrilled. Other excellent fishing opportunities available include the Yellowstone, Big Hole, Beaverhead, Gallatin, and Ruby Rivers. Our backyard is a fly fisherman’s playground!

At the Madison Valley Ranch, fly fishing packages are offered that include accommodations based on double occupancy, all meals: buffet breakfast, streamside lunch, evening appetizers, and a 4 course casual gourmet dinner (including complimentary beer & wine), guided drift and/or wade fishing (Madison River, Big Hole River, Yellowstone River, Ruby River, and Beaverhead River), use of ORVIS rods, reels and waders, and use of property amenities including fishing on the Jurassic Pond, Jack Creek, and the “Channels” section of the Madison River.

Outside each room’s front porch offers a countryside view of the surrounding three mountain ranges, the ever-changing Montana Big Sky and the resident wildlife in the fields. While each room changes slightly in size and bed configurations, the local, warm western touches are consistent in all. Although, we suspect you’ll find yourself continually enticed outside to wet a line one last time before bed, or to be entertained by Big Sky country.

The food at the “Ranch” is memorable and the perfect compliment to your adventure. Orvis’ Guide to Great Sporting Lodge Cuisine says it best:

“After a day spent in the outdoors, the chance to come back to a meal from world-class chef Scott Warren is a fitting end to the day.  Using the finest local ingredients as well as imported mainstays, Scott sets a table that ranks at the top of the lodge cuisine anywhere in the world.”

Let us take care of the details, while you enjoy our luxury lodging, gourmet meals, world class fly fishing, and pristine property!  You can escape from the hectic pace of everyday life and indulge in a luxury adventure where all the details are someone else’s worries and you are just warmly welcomed.
