About your host at Big Hole Lodge: Wade Fellin, Guide. Wade is a fifth generation Montanan deeply rooted in the Big Hole Valley. Wade has guided since 2006 and his deep conservation ethic stems from the same sources of clean, readily available water that attracted his ancestors, and later led him to study environmental and water law at the University of Montana. In addition to guiding and managing the Big Hole Lodge with his father and guiding, Wade is program director of Upper Missouri Waterkeeper, and chairman of the Big Hole River Foundation

Fishing experience at Big Hole Lodge: Big Hole Lodge is first and foremost a fly fishing lodge, and everything we do is focused around your fishing experience. All of our schedules are made to be flexible so we can accommodate your fishing desires and needs. During your week, the lodge is yours and we are here to provide a very memorable fly fishing trip.

The first day of your fishing week will most likely begin with a full day float on the legendary Big Hole River, known for its beauty and world-class wild trout fishing. The next day might find you floating the Beaverhead River, one of the finest tail-water fisheries in the country. On day three, you might wade a private spring creek that the lodge leases with trout averaging 18” and some landed in the 23”+ range. On the fourth you might wade the upper Clark Fork, Rock Creek, Deep Creek or float the Bitterroot River. The fifth and final day will find you floating a different stretch of the Big Hole with plenty of time to get out and wade. Click here for quick link country guide.
