I have become a regular at Madison Valley Ranch. The new lodge building is even more stunning than the original. If it’s possible, the staff is more accommodating every year. The meals are always creative and satisfying. The fishing guides are always first class and knowledgeable. This is by far the best fishing lodge I have ever stayed at. And what can I say about the fishing in the Madison River that hasn’t already been said.
Spent a few days with the good folks of Madison Valley Ranch in June 2022. Our first day of fishing with them was the most productive trout fishing I’ve ever experienced. My son and I both beat our personal best records with 20” and 22” brown trout and a number of fish coming in at 18” inches. Our guide Spence was extremely knowledgeable about these waters and knew just where and how to approach each stretch of the river. A true pro.
Recently took my father (81) on a long over due father/son trip. These folks were amazing. MVR staff, guides, mangers went above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We were both new to fly fishing and they made us feel like it didn't mean a thing, in a matter of 15 minutes Parker had us ,up and going. The guides they use from Eaton Outfitters are absolutely awesome, as green as we were ,they still put us on the fish. Hats off to the kitchen, everything was delicious. At the end of the day, I truly can not say enough about, Manu, Parker, Zach and the entire MVR team. They knew without me saying a thing, that fishing was important to us, but that a memorable time with my dad was the most important thing. I am truly grateful and thankful. Good lord willing we will return.
My step son and I spent five days at MVR and had an incredible time! The place is amazing and the staff are incredible. We had great meals for breakfast, lunch (on the river) and dinner including delicious wines. The fishing was amazing and I would say the guides were first class. The vistas were beautiful and never seemed to end. Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience.
My cousin and I enjoyed every minute of our stay at MVR! Manu, Zach, Pete, Hannah and the entire staff made the trip very comfortable and enjoyable. Truly a trip of a lifetime that we plan to repeat! Thank you!
My wife and I had a fantastic time at the MVR during a 3-night stay. Truly a top-class team and operation with great attention to detail that contributed to a memorable experience. Everything was on point - from the meals, seamless integration with Eaton Outfitters and overall lodging amenities. We are really glad we decided to stay at MVR and thanks to the entire team, especially Manu, Parker, Zach and Chris, for making our stay so special.

From our pickup at the Bozeman airport to our departure 4 days later nothing could have been. done better. The staff is amazing, the guides are professional and first class. The food is scary good, and the fishing choices are varied and exceptional. Plus the accommodations are lovely. A must trip for a trout fishing experience.
From the moment I stepped out of the car to ou departure ,I felt like I was visiting family. Every possible need if provided for you, from the quality Orvis equipment to the spectacular food morning and night. You send your days fishing a beautiful fishery, awesome guides and exceptional scenery. At night you sip cocktails by the bar or fireplace reliving the epic stories of the day with the staff and fellow fishing buddies you just met. This place could just be fly fisher persons heaven and the staff are the angels. You’ll definitely feel like you have died and gone to heaven.
