Montana Spirit Getaway

7 Days/6 Nights Lodging and Meals $650


Join us for a fabulous week of flyfishing for trophy Yellowstone brown trout, great food and fine accommodations at Montana Spirit Guest Lodge from September 30 through October 6, or October 7 through 13, 2007!

Before opening Cold Spring Anglers, we spent two or three weeks flyfishing near West Yellowstone, Montana every Fall.  The fishing was great, the scenery and fall foliage were incredible, and crowds were nonexistent. Last fall, we returned to the Montana Spirit Guest Lodge, 26 miles from West Yellowstone for the first of annual shop trips.  The trip was great, but the big browns hadn't yet moved upriver for the fall spawn.  This year, we've moved the trip to match the migration.

  The lodge is at 6,250 feet elevation, so nights are cold while days are usually temperate.  When it is clear, the low temperature is around 20 Fahrenheit with afternoon highs near 70.  When is cloudy, morning lows aren't as cold and afternoon highs are in the 40's to 50's.  It usually snows at least once during that time.

  You can find our more about the lodge at  A $350.00 deposit is required to confirm your reservation.  Final payment is due July 15.  Deposit and final payment are nonrefundable unless your replacement can be found, in which case you will be refunded less $65.00 processing fee. Travel  insurance to protect you in case of illness or accident that prevents you from traveling, is available through AAA, Frontiers International, and others.

  Montana Spirit Guest Lodge is located on the right on the Madison River just downstream of Quake Lake.  Ten lucky anglers can join us each week for the amazing price of $650.00 per person, double occupancy.  This price includes food and lodging from dinner on Sunday, through breakfast the following Saturday.  David Magistrelli, the owner, will be there and available to acompany you at least one day of your stay.  Herb and I are going to try to spend more time with guests and less in the kitchen this year, too.

Nature surrounds us as we share the area with elk, antelopes, mule deer, big horn sheep, grizzlies, coyotes, wolfs, black bears and eagles. It is not unusual to see these animals during your stay. Often you can see mountain sheep graze on the hill side across the river, a wolf on the trail up to Sheep Lake, or to gaze on eagles flying up the river while we eat supper.
