My friends and I love going out to the bighorn. Pete and bryan were incredibly commodating and helpful in the shop. Lodges are very nice. They got us the right flies to get on a lot of fish. We rented driftboats after getting a guided trip. Shuttle is included in the rental, which usually isn't the case at many other... More

I hired several guides from the Bighorn Angler and I have never been disappointed. I have also hired guides from other outfitters and have been disappointed. I read one review that the owners were not very personable. I agree they don't hawk you when you come into their store. I have always been asked if I needed anything and then... More

I am part of a group of fisherman that just finished our 9th annual trip staying with the Bighorn Angler. The quality of our experience exceeded expectations once again. Being able to have our dinner on-site is a huge upgrade. The new chef is almost unbelievable. Dinner all six nights were incredible. The group of guides gets even better every... More

Planned a couple days of fishing on the Horn with friends from college. Shelly was outstanding about accommodating us. We planned on 3 of us but changed to 4 last minute and Angler was great about making the change okay. Loved the Keurig machine coffee in the morning. Simple. Clean, big TV and comfortable beds. All we needed. We will... More

Big Horn anger provides the best fly fishing experience a person could hope for. A great staff clean rooms and awesome food complement a perfect Big Horn River experience. The guides on the Big Horn are the best on the river! I would highly recommend choosing the Big Horn angler fly shop as your place to stay for Big Horn... More

We have stayed here a few times over the years. Our most recent stay was in one of the 3 bed lodge rooms. It had 3 single beds that were very comfortable with a/c which is a huge plus in the summertime. There is free wifi as well as a coffee and water station in a common area. If your... More

This lodge is 1:45 hours from Billings. Cell coverage for only one carrier (Verizon?). Very comfortable rooms adjacent to a top notch fly shop. And the fishing? It's the Bighorn, dude. It is always awesome. Satellite t.v. is good, be forewarned, food options are a cafe across the street for decent burgers and service without a smile, and a higher... More

I have stayed at the BigHorn Angler for the past two seasons after fishing all over Montana. I won't be going anyplace else. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and an excellent value for your dollar. The fishing was incredible! I took my girlfriend there who had never fly fished before and in two days of fishing she caught... More

Booked an all inclusive 3 day, 4 night package with this property and am really glad I did. Dave as a guide was top notch, very patient and knowledgeable. Collette made fantastic breakfast and lunches and I am sure I gained some weight on this trip even with the exertion of hauling browns and bows into the boat for 3... More
