Madison Valley Ranch

The Ranch, or MVR for short, sits just a few miles outside of Ennis, Montana along the blue ribbon Madison River. This is where the rugged Rocky Mountains meet the quintessential ranchlands of the wild west. We are an established and award-winning fly fishing lodge with a convenient location for anglers, couples, friends and corporate groups to truly get away from it all. Welcome to your new home away from home!   

Lodge Overview

The best fishing in Montana.

Ennis, Montana is the cultural epicenter of fly fishing and central to the best trout fisheries in Montana. The blue ribbon Upper Madison River in our backyard is legendary in status.

A 5-Star Fishing Lodge

Lodge's service, food and facilities are 5 star. This lodge is surrounded by such beauty, with mountains in the background, the feel of a log cabin lodge, nicely stocked pond and a portion of the Madison River that you can wade fish in.

Perfect for our annual trip!

I've visited Madison Valley Ranch now too many times to count, and each time I return, the experience gets better. Aside from the world-class fishing, the lodging is second to none, the food is fantastic, and the company is always great.
