Along with the incredible fishing, you’ll also enjoy the incredible scenery. A truly beautiful Montana alpine valley view surrounds the upper river.
Originating in the Gravelly Range, the upper Ruby is a freestone river before it settles and flows into the Ruby Reservoir. Characterized by short riffled corners, plunge pools and boulder runs, the upper Ruby has more pocket water than downriver. Abundant hatches of PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, and Caddis are standard but the Ruby’s hottest action would be mid to late summer when the river larger browns are really looking for ‘hoppers; explosive strikes make for truly exciting fly fishing!
