Non-Fishing Adventures

Summer in Montana offers many exciting things to do and see other than fishing. A drive up the scenic upper Big Hole Valley to Wisdom through historic Montana ranch country is always a pleasurable day. For spouses or companions interested in exploring the culture and history of Montana while your significant other is fishing, we offer a guided tour of local museums, a ghost town, historic battlefield, summer theatre matinees, festivals, and art galleries.

In Wisdom, you will discover a beautiful Western Art Gallery. Just north of Wisdom, you can view a short documentary of the historic “Battle of the Big Hole” at the Chief Joseph battleground.

This is managed by the National Park Service and is very interesting. We also recommend a visit to nearby Bannack ghost town, the former territorial capital of Montana. It’s the best preserved ghost town in the state. Driving through old Montana is like turning the pages of history books back 100 years. Your guide is Shawna Page. Reservations are appreciated and the additional rate is $315 per day (one person) plus venue charge, if applicable.

Other options are golf at the nearby course Old Works, a Jack Nicklaus signature course, horseback riding with a guide, soaking in local natural hot springs, biking and hiking the extensive trail systems just outside the lodge gate, inner tubing the Wise or Big Hole, shopping and digging for quartz crystals. The opportunities are endless!
