We have so many fishing options at Ruby Springs, it's almost not fair.
Over 10 miles of the fabled Ruby River and its tributaries run through the lodge property, for world-class private water trout fishing. In addition, anglers have access to numerous spring-fed ponds within a few minutes' walk from any of the cabins.
Four more of the world's best wild trout streams are within easy striking distance: the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Jefferson, and Madison, with multiple private water leases offering even more angling options.
The lodge's full-time, on-staff guides are professional, patient, and personable, and they know these waters inside and out. Whether you're a beginner looking for instruction, or an expert in search of the next challenge, they're here to help make it happen.
If you have a passion for wild trout fishing, you know that this part of Montana is pretty hard to beat.
The purest of river water. Snow-studded mountains. The silent rise of an unseen wild trout. Quiet camaraderie at the end of another perfect day on the water...
The legendary Ruby River winds among willows and hayfields, past too-small-for-stoplights towns like Alder and Laurin, and that's where you'll find our stretch of riverbank — and the place where we strive to deliver a remarkable outdoor sporting experience for a limited number of guests.
Welcome to Ruby Springs Lodge...
Many of our guests have questions about the proper procedure for tipping at Ruby Springs. Please use the following as a guideline for what you feel is appropriate. We employ a tip pool that’s shared by the entire lodge staff because everyone here plays a critical role in ensuring your experience is positive. Most of our guests choose to put 8% of their total bill toward this tip pool, which can be included in the final bill upon checkout. Additionally, fishing guides receive an average of $125 per day for each guided trip (1 or 2 anglers), and the guides prefer cash or personal check. You can tip your guide at the end of the day, or the end of your stay – whatever’s most convenient for you. And remember, these are simply guidelines, and you should tip what you feel is appropriate. And please let us know if there’s anything special that we can do to enhance your stay.
