Looking to fish a big Montana river with breathtaking scenery? Slow Eddy Montana Ranch is just an hour’s drive from Missoula, Montana. Here you will find 1 3/4 miles of fishing on the Clark Fork River.

Once below the confluence of the Bitterroot River, the Clark Fork River takes on a new character. Here you will find a big Montana river that is wide and flowy but still very fishable.

Slow Eddy Montana Ranch offers the gamut of slow channels and big water with a few larger back channels and eddies, dependent on river flows. Fish are known to cruise some of these slower waters in a predatory manner but do not forget to look in those obvious feed lines. This ranch does allow for easier access due to the topography, the banks consist of fist-size stones and larger, with an occasional sandy bank. Browns, Rainbows, and Pike are all options on this section of the river.

There are multiple access locations on this property, with the easiest access downstream.

Want to make a long weekend or week out of it? Camping is permitted here. We have 2 separate private camping areas located on the Slow Eddy Montana Ranch. If you have a large group consider booking our neighboring property, Clark Fork Overlook Ranch, as well.

Please allow up to 2 business days for booking confirmations.
