Fishing & Wildlife
Triple Creek Ranch is an ORVIS endorsed fishing lodge with two stocked ponds on property, and the West Fork of the Bitterroot River at the foot of our driveway.. All Orvis fly fishing equipment is complimentary for guests while visiting our lodge. Fly casting lessons on-ranch or bank fishing on our private sister ranch is available upon request with maps provided for the best fishng 'hot-spots'. Whether a beginner, intermediate or expert, Orvis-endorsed guides from Fly Fishing Always are ready to row anglers down the West Fork, East Fork or main stem of the Bitterroot River. And, what a memorable day of trout fishing it will be with expert guides who are the best in the area when it comes to knowing these waters, hatches, and proper flies to use to bring in a big trout.
You may also choose summer trout fly fishing and spin casting with Rawhide Outfitters on the scenic Salmon River July and August or Steelhead fishing with a strong native run on the Salmon River October and November. With years of experience, Rawhide Outfitters' guides ensure the highest possible success rate using a wide variety of both traditional and modern methods and who specialize in drift and wade fly fishing, dry or wet fly fishing and /or spin casting, depending on personal preference. Catch and release is encouraged and a fisherman size hot lunch will be prepared for you.
For a little more adventure, Selway Wilderness fly fishing is available mid-May through October - weather permitting. The Selway River has the most pristine fly fishing waters in America. Fly 30 minutes into the roadless region of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness where landing on a grass airstrip is the norm. Guides will be waiting from the remote Running Creek Ranch to escort you on horseback or by foot into the untraveled wilderness of Northern Idaho. Famous for cutthroat, rainbow, bull trout and steelhead, fishing the crystal clear waters of the Selway is a vivid reminder of by-gone days when fish were plenty and your only companions were the four-legged natives.

Marcus Daly Mansion
The Marcus Daly Mansion is a National Historic Site owned by the State of Montana. The mansion was the family summer home of Copper Baron, Marcus Daly, who founded the town of Hamilton, Montana, in the late 1800s. In 1886, Marcus Daly purchased the existing Anthony Chafin homestead, including the farmhouse, and had it remodeled by 1889. He renovated the residence again in 1897 to a Queen Anne style Victorian home. After Marcus Daly's death, the home was again remodeled into a Georgian-Revival style mansion. The three-story Hamilton, Montana mansion (24,000 square feet) has over 50 rooms, with 25 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, and 7 fireplaces, 5 of which have imported Italian marble. Some of the main rooms include a large living room, music room, formal dining room, sun room, trophy room (which was added in 1914), an upstairs sitting room, and a third floor billiard hall. Hamilton is 30 miles from Triple Creek Ranch.

Ravalli County Museum
This former Ravalli County Courthouse, built by A.J. Gibson in 1900, served as a courthouse until 1979 when it was saved from the wrecker’s ball by a vote of the people. It now houses what is considered by many to be the finest little museum in the Northwest. Permanent collections include a Native American collection, Ricketts Museum, commemorating the development of the Rocky Mountain Laboratory, an antique kitchen, miner / trapper room, a veteran's display, Ernst Peterson photo exhibits, extensive archives, Victorian rooms, and a Railway Express agent office. Rotating exhibits in the former courtroom and a weekly Sunday Series Program at 2:00 p.m. are of historic and cultural significance.
