There is little debate that Southwest Montana fly fishing is the best the country has to offer. With several of the best fly fishing rivers in close proximity, the Sunrise Fly Shop is the perfect location for your next Montana fly fishing vacation. We are fortunate to be located in the middle of 3 of the best fly fishing rivers Montana has to offer. Together, each of these unique rivers can provide everything you seek in a fly fishing vacation. Explore the pristine and dynamic nature of the Big Hole River, experience the abundant insect life of the Beaverhead River, or enjoy the huge fish and low angler pressure of the Jefferson River.
How To Get There
Whenever we are on the road, one of the most common questions we are asked is “Where is Melrose?” In our minds it’s in the center of the universe, but we understand that others may need a little more direction. Melrose is located on the banks of the Big Hole River in Southwest Montana. We are about 30 miles south of Butte and 30 miles north of Dillon. Butte and Bozeman are the two closest airports to our fly shop. If you are driving, take exit 93 off of Interstate 15, and you too can enjoy the wonders of this beautiful town of 60 people. For those of you that are more technical about location and directions, we are at 45.63°N 112.64°W, at an elevation of 5576 ft. However you look at it, or however you find us, just make sure you come and visit one of the greatest little fly fishing towns in the country.
