Welcome To Great Waters Inn  Montana Fly Fishing Big Hole River

Located fives miles south of Melrose, nestled amongst majestic stands of cottonwoods, you will find one of Montana’s original fly fishing lodges. 

Built in the grand tradition of the early hunting and fishing lodges, from local fir trees and river rock, our lodge exudes a rich ambiance that compliments the area’s outstanding rivers and streams. With capacity for eighteen guests, Great Waters Inn can accommodate corporate gatherings as well as smaller groups of visiting anglers

Daily lodging and meal packages are available as is daily guide rates for those of you interested in alternating a day or two of guided fishing with your own efforts as you explore the wonders of the Big Hole Valley. 

All the while you will be our guests staying right on the banks of the Big Hole River, your headquarters for the best producing waters of Southwest Montana. A quick call or email, and we will be happy to visit and help you plan your Montana fly fishing vacation.
