Ideally situated in the heart of the famous Ruby Valley, the lodge is located at the edge of the quaint town of Sheridan, Montana.  Surrounded by six blue-ribbon trout streams and seven mountain ranges, this Montana cabin is truly located in a sportsman�s paradise.

Fish Montana’s finest waters: The Beaverhead, Big Hole, Jefferson, Madison and Ruby rivers. The Ruby River is an outstanding small tailwater fishery. Lesser known, the Ruby has much less fishing pressure and provides first class fishing for Rainbows and Browns in the 14" - 17" class, with fish 18" - 20" common.

FISHING:  The Ruby River runs through town and joins the Beaverhead 5 miles to the north, where it joins together with the Big Hole to form the Jefferson.  The lodge is located midway between the Madison River (35 miles to the east) and the trophy section of the Big Hole River (40 minutes to the west).  Fabulous fishing is also available on several beautiful rivers in Yellowstone National Park, which is located approximately 100 miles to the southeast.  Fishing on the Henry�s Fork of the Snake River is available only a couple of hours to the south.  Additionally, there are countless high mountain lakes in the area, which offer fine trout fishing as well.  Why lock yourself into a location and fish one or two rivers, when you can stay in Sheridan and literally fish a different blue-ribbon trout stream every day?  The region boasts 103 fishing access sites.

HUNTING:  The Ruby Valley Lodge is located in Montana�s Fish, Wildlife, & Parks Region 3 � Southwestern Montana.  Region 3 encompasses 18,089 square miles and includes the counties of   Broadwater, Gallatin, Madison (where Ruby Valley Lodge is located), Beaverhead, and Jefferson.  Big game hunting is outstanding in the Southwest Montana area.  Approximately 50% of the elk harvest in the entire state of Montana comes from Region 3.
