Madison Valley Ranch Fishing
Fishing Guides Chris and Julie Eaton

Join us in April for our  Beat the Run-off special!

We invite you to join us for MVR’s second annual “Beat the Run-off,” three river fly fishing extravaganza!

Four night/three day fly fishing adventure centered on one day on the Bear Trap to be taken on either April 14th & April 15th, 2018. Each day of fishing is as follows:

Rafting and fly fishing the Bear Trap Canyon of the Madison River.  The limited access to the Bear Trap Canyon offers a unique spring fishing opportunity for big trout that don’t see many fishermen – ever!  Limited to just one outfitter and with a very limited number of total floats allowed, MVR booked two days of spring fishing, with two boats each day. Just eight lucky guests will experience this wilderness pre-runoff fishing fantasy.  Bring your 6 and 7 weight rods to throw big flies into rapids and deep holes.  You may even catch the early end of the Mothers’ Day Caddis hatch as you exit Bear Trap Canyon itself.


Float the Upper Madison in prime pre-runoff conditions as the trout feed aggressively following the long Montana winter.  This is the third year that the entire Madison River is open for spring fishing so you may experience previously closed sections such as the Channels behind MVR or the picturesque pocket water from Lyons Bridge to McAtee


Choose between two of Montana’s iconic rivers for your third day!  Experience the Big Hole River with the opportunity to experience the famed Skwala stonefly hatch.  This river allows limited floats, but Eaton Outfitters is set to give you an exclusive experience on the Big Hole! Experience an iconic freestone river with a day on the Yellowstone.  This river is a dry fly fisherman’s paradise with great March Brown, Blue Winged Olive, and caddis hatches in the spring! Streamer fishermen will delight in the stretch below Livingston as well!


 Packages begin at $3,295 per person (double occupancy).  Rates subject to change by room and occupancy type.  Limited to just eight lucky anglers!
