As its name implies, Five Rivers Lodge is in close proximity to the Beaverhead, the Big Hole, the Ruby, the Jefferson and the Madison Rivers, each famous for the large trout that call them home. Guests enjoy miles of wading access, floats on bigger water or spectacular horseback trips to fish the high mountain lakes and streams. There is also private water directly in front of the lodge for guests would like to get in some practice or some extra hours of fishing. Many Five Rivers’ guests have taken their personal best from this water.
In addition to the big name rivers, there are miles spring creeks and streams that offer a more intimate fishing experience. Both beginners and experts will enjoy fishing these waters, which receive little pressure. Each hold good numbers of trout with a variety of dispositions from picky to voracious trout that will explode on resembling a “hopper”.
Each section of the private water is rested (some sections are only fished once a week). The limited numbers of anglers and attention to fishing pressure insures privacy and a quality fishing experience. Five Rivers’ catch and release policy protects the wild, native trout. With access to a wide variety of private waters and blue ribbon trout streams, Five Rivers Lodge offers some of the finest fishing in the United States. All of this without the crowds usually associated with world-class fishing, except for the birds, waterfowl, wildlife and wildflowers that are abundant in this mountainous section of the Lewis & Clark Trail; so don’t forget your camera!
The guides at Five Rivers are experienced, hard working and excellent teachers. They all enjoy working with anglers at any level of experience or expertise. The guides also have a unique opportunity to guide during the winter months at Cinco Rios, the sister lodge to Five Rivers, in Southern Chile. These guides are willing to stay out well into the evening to fish the exceptional hatches that come off at dusk.
