Enjoy an all-inclusive experience just steps away from the legendary Madison River. The location simply can't be beaten: the lodge is situated at the center of the famous Upper Madison " 50-mile riffle".

The lodge is surrounded by protected public BLM lands that adjoin the Wall Creek Wildlife Management area which is home to abundant wildlife. You won’t have to worry about neighbors and can enjoy the private feel during your stay.

The legendary waters of Yellowstone Park are only one hour away and the trophy dry fly fisheries of Hebgen Lake are just 45 minutes upstream. A longer drive will land you on the Ruby, Jefferson, Gallatin or Missouri Rivers. This traditional style lodge has a classic look and warm feel with its warm wood accents and stone fireplaces. The huge back decks provide amazing views upstream along the river and surrounding mountains. The private setting, incredible access, and warm and inviting staff make this a truly special location.

Enjoy culinary cuisine for each meal prepaid by a private chef starting with a fulfilling breakfast, then a sack lunch while on the river. After a memorable day of fishing arrive at the lodge to appetizers, wine and beer ready for your consumption, followed by dinner with a view overlooking the Madison River.

  • “Excellent Outfitter! Took great care of us for three days on the river. As a first time fly fisher he was the perfect guide to have: knowledgeable, patient, taught us to fish, to read the water, and to not just sit there with our teeth in our mouth! The lodging/cabin combo package was an excellent deal through Driftwaters Resort. Won't hesitate to come back and would highly recommend him as a guide and teacher.“

    The lodging at Blue Moon Saloon was so nice.
    The cabin was cozy & comfortable, the food & beer were so tasty and Darcy & her crew were wonderful.
    The float/wade trip was so much fun.  Never having been on one we didn’t know what to expect, it was better than we could have ever imagined.
    John Kirk was a great guide!!! Very knowledgeable and professional. I was so nervous..he put me at ease right away.  So helpful and patience…I really learned a lot too!
    It was a beautiful day on the river... catching fish… laughing… just enjoying everything!!!
    We would do it again in a heart beat!!
    Thanks again to you & John Kirk
    and also Darcy and the Blue Moon Saloon gang.

  • I did the Road House package . Staying at the Blue Moon Saloon . Meet Nate at the NJ Fly Fishing Show. After looking through all my brochures from the show it was hard to pick one guide over another. Many of the guides were in the Montana area where I had planned to travel and fish to. I talked to many guides and one guide stood out and that was Nate with Trout on the Fly . Wonderfully set of people. My guide for the trip was John Kirk . We fished the Madison River May 5th and 6th 2017 . Which at that time it can be a crap shoot with weather either being freezing or beautiful. The weather was a perfect 75 degrees. Day one I caught probably 30 to 40 rainbow trout on the upper end of the Madison. Later in the day nearing the take out spot we hit a spot where it was one fish after another no exaggeration just great . Day 2 we fished more middle part of the river which is totally different scenery. I caught fish but had to work for them a lot harder then day one. We got to about 12 by noon and John said to me do you wanna go back up to where we were yesterday and fish. After a question is asked like that ( something that most guides would not ask rather then pan that section of river out for the rest of the day. Bring it takes time to get to the take out the. Re launch the boat which is maybe a two hour process probably more like 3 hours.) I said hell yea lets do it. We got the boat out and hauled it to where we fished day one. We produced a lot of fish for the remainder of the day. Trout on the Fly want you to have a good time and wants you to catch fish. It is a hard thing to do trying to find the right guide that fits your personality and Trout on the Fly went over and beyond on this trip everything was great . The Blue Moon had excellent dinner every night and great hospitality. Nate organized my trip very professional and everything was a breeze. John Kirk was a hell of a guide thank you for everything will be back out next year to do it over again, Roy from New Jersey
