GENERAL INFORMATION FOR RUBY SPRINGS LODGE

You wake up to a gentle “Good morning” and the smell of strong coffee seeping under your cabin door. Outside a basket awaits with a steaming carafe and fresh squeezed juice. The sun’s orange rays soak the craggy mountains, and a meadowlark sings brashly from an unseen fencepost just downstream. You think back on last night, alive with conversation over Montana-raised rack of lamb and a nice Oregon Pinot Noir, as you stand by the window and scan the river for rising trout-a peaceful preface to an exhilarating day flyfishing out on the water. How can something as simple as this feel so necessary…
Each of the six private cabins is set a few yards from the meandering Ruby River

Cabin amenities include optional king or twin beds facing a fireplace within a large, open floor plan, a bright and inviting full bath, oversized tubs and heated tile floors and a screened porch. Gourmet breakfasts and dinners are served in the stunning main lodge, with several original entrée options to choose from each day.

Lunch is prepared streamside by your fishing guide, and each evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are enjoyed in the River Room overlooking the Ruby. The Tobacco Root Cabin is designed for the angler who would like more spacious accomodations. It features a master bedroom with two private bathrooms, a comfortable living area with river rock fireplace, wet bar, and screened porch.

Many of our guests plan a late afternoon arrival on their check-in day. This allows plenty of time to settle in, relax, or even spend a few hour fishing the Ruby. Each evening of your stay begins with a cocktail and appetizer hour in the River Room at the lodge. This is a time to exchange stories with other guests, unwind after an exciting day on the river, or talk with your hosts (John & Krista, or Paul & Jeanne) about plans for the next day's fishing. Following cocktail hour, guests are treated to a gourmet dinner complete with an appropriate wine selection from our cellar. Each morning, we personally-deliver a wake-up basket filled with coffee, tea, or juice. When you are ready to greet the day, stroll down the boardwalk to enjoy a hearty, cooked-to-order Montana breakfast. For lunch, you will either experience a delicious streamside picnic on one of our nearby blue-ribbon float trip fisheries—or you will enjoy a day wading our private access, taking a break back at the lodge for an expertly-prepared patio lunch.

Breakfast and the lodge's wonderful amenities become a faint memory as the driftbat pulls free of the shore and your first cast unrolls above the chilly water. Your guide has you out on the Big Hole today, throwing caddis at the shaded banks that slide by. Without this incredible scenery and silence, fishing just wouldn't be as enthralling as it is—but then again, really good wild trout fishing is a vital part of the mix too. You release another wide-bodied brown, taking a moment to relish the blue sky against the canyon walls. Days like this are meant to pass as slowly as possible...


ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AT RUBY SPRINGS LODGE
Ruby Springs Lodge isn't just about world-class flyfishing. The non-angling activities available from the lodge tempt even the most die-hard fisherfolk to take a break from the water. Just a few of the options include:

  • Guided horseback rides into the stunning mountains that surround the Ruby Valley Ruby-Springs-Horse.jpg
  • Golfing at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Old Works Golf Course
  • Guided hiking trips on miles of wilderness trails with expert naturalists who can teach you about the local flora and fauna.
  • Sightseeing and photography trips to historic Virginia City, the Big Hole Battlefield, or Montana’s first territorial capital, Bannack.
  • Professional massages are available in your cabin for an additional charge.

If you would like to try any of these activities, just let us know and we can make all the arrangements (for guided activities, advance planning is strongly recommended).

GRATUITY GUIDELINES
Many of our guests have questions about the proper procedure for tipping at Ruby Springs. Please use the following as a guideline for what you feel is appropriate. We employ a tip pool that’s shared by the entire lodge staff because everyone here plays a critical role in ensuring your experience is positive. Most of our guests choose to put 8% of their total bill toward this tip pool, which can be included in the final bill upon checkout. Additionally, fishing guides receive an average of $75-$150 per day for each guided trip (1 or 2 anglers), and the guides prefer cash or personal check. You can tip your guide at the end of the day, or the end of your stay – whatever’s most convenient for you. And remember, these are simply guidelines, and you should tip what you feel is appropriate. And please let us know if there’s anything special that we can do to enhance your stay.
