Big Hole Fishing Experience
Wise River, Montana
Let your mind’s eye envision a Western river, flanked by jagged, snowcapped peaks, towering pines, and whispers of wind through endless fields and rolling hills. You are thinking of a river originally named the Wisdom by Meriwether Lewis, renamed the Big Hole by fur trappers who referred to valleys as ‘holes.’ Established in 1984, the Big Hole Lodge continues to offer world-renowned wild trout fishing, remarkable cuisine, and comfortable accommodations in a secluded mountain setting. The Big Hole Lodge is truly one of the classic fly fishing lodge experiences in the American West.
