Buffalo Ranch


At Buffalo Ranch site preparation began early…

Twenty-five-thousand years ago a vast Yellowstone Glacier receded after sculpting an expanse both bold and beautiful, leaving a land of gentle yet exciting terrain. Here and there the ancient ice-river left behind tremendous boulders, what geologists call glacial erratics, some taller than a cabin. For 250 centuries they quietly waited.

Buffalo Ranch lies in Montana’s Paradise Valley, a giant amphitheater surrounded by dramatic mountain vistas. The Yellowstone River flows here, sometimes rushing in white water dances, sometimes meandering peacefully across the valley floor; each mile holding nearly 3,000 rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Throughout the fly-fishing world it is a river known and revered.

“I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love.”
