The Upper Madison Valley is one of the most exciting and beautiful places to cast a fly in the state of Montana. With an abundance of rivers, lakes, and streams, fly fishing opportunities are endless and easily accessible. The Madison River begins all the way in Yellowstone National Park and flows over 180 miles until its confluence with the Jefferson and Gallatin Rivers. With several different sections, above the lakes, between the lakes, the Upper Madison, and the Lower Madison, there is an abundance of different spots, water types, and fish species to target. The Madison is a favorite among locals, tourists, and guides alike, with great fishing year-round. There are numerous fly fishing guides and fly shops in Ennis, along with the annual Fly Fishing Festival in Ennis during late summer or early fall.

'The view from this property is unbeatable! From the moment you walk onto the expansive back deck, you want to find any excuse to be out there. We would lounge in the mornings, drinking coffee and looking out over the beautiful river and mountains beyond. In the afternoons and early evenings, we’d enjoy snacks on the deck and watch the wildlife – all kinds of birds, ducks, and families of deer. At night, we’d go outside before bed to look up at the millions of stars and then drift off to sleep with the windows open, listening to the calming sound of the river. The house itself is cozy and relaxing and comfortable, with a smaller guesthouse behind that is perfect for a little more privacy. The kitchen has everything you need and more, and the bathrooms are spacious and updated. Overall, a property with loads of character you can tell has been loved and well taken care of. Located just 5 minutes from town, we had a wonderful time in Ennis visiting the shops, boutiques, restaurants and breweries more than once. I can’t wait to come back for another visit!'
