Experience the Best of Montana's Big Hole River
paper texture
The Big Hole River is unique, secluded, and majestic – one of the most iconic rivers in the US West. Nestled right on the banks of the Big Hole is the Complete Fly Fisher Lodge – an operation that has prided itself on hosting anglers from throughout the US and across the globe since 1968. Located just downstream from the confluence of the Big Hole and the Wise River, the lodge is perfectly suited and situated to take advantage of the amazing angling opportunities found all throughout the immediate area, as well as numerous outdoor recreational activities in the Big Hole Valley and throughout Southwestern Montana. The lodge was recently purchased by a new ownership group led by two fly fishing industry veterans – Paul Moseley of the well-known Ruby Spring Lodge, and John Barrett, a long-time television personality and host of Fly Fishing the World.

Lodging Details
The Complete Fly Fisher can accommodate up to 14 guests in private accommodations situated along the banks of the Big Hole. Each cabin and room is tastefully appointed and designed for maximum comfort and relaxation.

Each cabin has spectacular views, enclosed glassed and screened porches, and a private bath. Choose between two, extra-long twins or a king bed. Also available is a two-bedroom cottage with queen beds, private baths, a kitchen, and a sitting room with a glassed-in porch. A specific cabin can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lodge Suites
There are bedrooms at either end of the main lodge building, nicely appointed with their own bathrooms and amazing views of the Big Hole River. You can literally hear the sounds of the river as it passes directly by your room. And – you can smell breakfast and fresh muffins cooking just down the hall each morning!

Food and Beverages
The scenery, the stories, and the company at the bank-side dining table are a big part of the Complete Fly Fisher experience. There is no better way to end a day of fishing and outdoor activities than basking in the glow of a Montana evening while enjoying exceptional cuisine, great conversation, and authentic Montana hospitality. Chef Sean Kim and Chef Nicole Carey are partners in life and in the kitchen. Both are graduates of the Culinary Institute of America and bring a life-long passion for cooking to the Big Hole Valley. They have a diverse culinary background with stints at prestigious Italian, Japanese, and Asian restaurants. Our Yellow Dog team can tell you from first-hand experience that Sean and Nicole create some of the most incredible meals we’ve ever had at a Western US lodge.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Southwest Montana is a paradise for outdoor recreation. Surrounded by the snow-crowned peaks of Glacier National Park to the north and the geological marvels of Yellowstone National Park to the south, this vast region holds the very best of what Montana is all about. Along with some of the best trout fishing in the world, area activities include hiking, camping, visits to authentic western ghost towns, cycling, hot springs, golf, rafting, horseback riding, exploring nearby small towns, summer rodeos, and so much more. This is a fantastic option for non-angling spouses and families.

Internet / Communications
The lodge offers strong wireless internet throughout the property. Cell service is available in most areas of the valley, although the signal can be spotty or altogether unavailable at the lodge. (Enjoy it!)
