A Montana fishing secret, Jefferson River provides beautiful scenery of the surrounding Tobacco Root and Highland Mountains, and some of the best trophy trout fishing in Montana.

The hatches of the Madison are legendary. Swarms of Mother’s Day Caddis and giant Salmon flies entice thick shouldered rainbow and brown trout from its swift currents.

Experienced or beginner, the Ruby is the perfect wade fishing stream as there are no boats floating through your water. Couple that with beautiful alpine valley views and solitude, and a day on the Ruby is not to be missed.

Fish a different Blue Ribbon river each day!
