Thursday, July 1st, 2010


Located in southwestern Montana, Craig Fellin Outfitters & Big Hole Lodge offers quality fly fishing, western, and lodging experiences for anglers in the spring, summer, and fall seasons.

Trips are available on various outstanding fishing rivers including the Big Hole River, Bitterfoot River, and Ruby River. Fishing is also available on Rock Creek and private creeks located throughout the property.

With experienced and enthusiastic guides eager to help you improve your skills during your fly-fishing adventure, Big Hole is the ideal place for visitors to advance quickly in the sport. As one of the guides, owner and operator of the lodge, Craig Fellin, ensures his guests are getting the most out of their visit.

Craig Fellin delivers personalized service and warm hospitality to all his guests by limiting the capacity of the lodge to 12. The ranch offers spacious private cabins with modern amenities and beautiful views of the Wise River Valley and Pioneer Mountains. Guests are also treated to delicious western meals prepared by Chef Lannette Evener, who has been working at Big Hole for 14 seasons.

For anglers, or their spouses, looking to enjoy activities other than fly-fishing, Big Hole offers float and camp trips down the Big Hole River, guided tours of local attractions, such as museums and a historic battlefield, horseback riding, bicycling, hot springs, local rodeos, and hiking. Welcomes The Resort at Paws Up

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010 is pleased to welcome The Resort at Paws Up to our site.

Equipped with decadent vacation homes and luxury tents for those wishing to go “glamping,” the resort is the ideal place to experience the breathtaking wilderness of Montana with all the comforts and amenities of a five-star hotel.

Owned by David and Nadine Lipson, Paws Up is located within the golden triangle of western trout fishing. Known for being one of the best spots in the United States for fly-fishing, the golden triangle is where several legendry rivers, including the Missouri, Clark Fork, and the Bitterfoot join together at Glacier National Park.

With access to some of the most acclaimed rivers and finest trout in the country, Paws Up offers various invigorating fishing trips:

  • Blackfoot Fly-Fishing: The resort is an angler’s paradise with 10 private miles of the Blackfoot on the property. With half-day or full-day trips available on this river, guests can enjoy fishing for Cutthroat and Rainbow trout.
  • Clark Fork Fly-Fishing: Half-day or full-day trips are also offered on the Clark Fork. However, due to the size of this river and its long riffles and runs, most of the fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout is done from the boat.
  • Missouri Fly-Fishing: Guests can part-take in day float trips down the Missouri, located just 90 minutes from the resort. This legendry, gentle-sloped river is the perfect place for Rainbow trout fishing.
  • Paws Up Outfitters: Another way for anglers to enjoy the backcountry of Montana is through Paws Up Outfitters. Luxurious 5 or 7 day float trips are available for visitors who want the non-stop adventure of fishing in these legendry rivers.

To protect the rivers and their inhabitants, Paws Up requires that all visitors partake in catch-and-release fishing. This practice is part of a larger sustainability effort developed by the resort known as iPreserve at Paws Up.
