Montana Destination Weddings

    Invitation

    The Ranch at Rock Creek invites you to join us for an exceptional four-night spring fly fishing vacation at our Five-Star resort in Western Montana.  Enthusiastic anglers enjoy memorable fishing days and private access to the acclaimed Rock Creek with our expert guides. Stellar evenings under the big Montana sky are complemented by luxury amenities and the fun exchange of fish tales over regionally-inspired gourmet meals prepared by our Executive Chef, Josh Drage. 

    Rock Creek

    Nestled among snow-capped mountain ranges, peaceful meadows, and home to abundant wildlife, The Ranch at Rock Creek encompasses four miles of pristine river frontage on the Blue Ribbon trout stream. A freestone mountain stream, Rock Creek is naturally fed from snow melt and spring runoff. With one of the highest fish populations in the state, Rock Creek boasts six different species of trout, including cutthroat, cut-bow, rainbow, brown, brook, and bull as well as the mountain whitefish.

    The Spring Experience

    Spring is a wonderful, thrilling time to get out on the water and learn about the world of “emergers.” With the instruction of our guides, guests explore select secret locations and reap the benefits of the coveted annual stonefly hatch. We will wade some runs and riffles and float water ways to see big fish come to the surface for their favorite bugs. Salmon Fly, Skwala, May Fly, Stonefly Nymph, May Fly Nymph species are all represented. In the spring, streamer fishing is at its best.

    Experienced Montana Licensed Fishing Guides 

    Our guides are truly the best in the West.  As fly fishing experts and Rock Creek specialists, they know the fish, the flies and the best spots.  Our guides are passionate fishermen themselves and bring extensive knowledge and experience (and stories) from fishing the many rivers, lakes and streams of Western Montana. 
     

    Instruction

    Guests have casting lessons and river side instruction.  Whether it’s a double haul to perfect, casting into a gusty wind, or simply getting back to the basics of a steeple cast, our guides focus on each guest’s abilities and goals while providing great pointers and useful tools to enhance all fishing skills.
     

    Fly Fishing Amenities

    Upon arrival in their accommodations, guests find all the amenities and equipment needed for their time on the water.  While anglers are welcome to bring their own gear, we provide a rod, reel, waders, boots, and a selection of locally-crafted, hand-tied flies.
     

    Fly Tying

    Nothing is more rewarding than catching a trout on a fly that is personally hand crafted. Guests will learn about the art of fly tying and get the chance to wrap hooks with thread and materials to fool a cleaver trout.
     

    Wading and Floating on a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream

    Rock Creek’s designation as a Blue Ribbon trout fishery means guests can expect clean water and enough water flow to support a healthy population of fish.  Per Montana’s stream access laws, all designated rivers or streams must be accessible to the public as the water and the land below is public property.  The body of water must also possess the natural capability to produce and maintain a sustainable recreational fishery, and withstand angling pressure.  With seasonal floating access to most of the 52 miles of Rock Creek in the spring and early summer, guests float a stretch suited to their interests and fishing abilities.  
     

    All-Inclusive Amenities

    The following amenities are also included in the special package rate:  Luxury accommodations; Airport transfers; Gourmet meals featuring locally-sourced seasonal ingredients; Premium wine, beer and spirits.
