About

Location: Set among 160 acres in Craig, Montana, our active farm/ranch provides you with big open landscapes, along with boasting over a mile of private year-around fly fishing access.

About your host at Missouri River Ranch: Chip and Sue Anderson, Hosts. Chip and Sue Anderson are both 3rd generation Montanans. After school, they decided to see the world working in high profile corporate jobs: Chip in the telecom industry and Sue in banking. But as we all know Montana has a way of pulling you back home. Sue's brother, Jerry Tonkovich, is certified in Wetland Science and Management. He is integral in helping to maintain our gently sloping shoreline and jetties which help protect and support our native fish population.

Fishing experience at Missouri River Ranch: It is a 10 minute walk from the Lodge to the river on our private road. Once there, we have approximately 1.3 miles of river frontage, enabling guests to wade or even fish from the shore thanks to gently sloping banks. Ask about the ability to launch or take out your drift boat from the Ranch's riverbank, providing an extra measure of convenience for the dedicated angler. The Missouri River is world-renowned for its dry fly fishing, particularly for large rainbow and brown trout. The latest “Fish-per-Mile” study was conducted in October of 2016; the results of that study found that there were over 4,000 rainbow trout fish per mile in the Craig, MT stretch of the Missouri River. That compares to a long term average of just over 3,000 per mile. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks stated that high flows in the river combined with the end of a decade-long drought in 2008 continues to help keep fish numbers high. In some of the slower moving stretches and the reservoirs upstream of the Ranch, you can fish for walleye, carp, and whitefish. Click here for quick link country guide.
