We're Minnesota Natives. Roarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Start the day at your own pace. Wake up to the fresh aroma of Starbucks® Coffee. Pour yourself a cup and fire up the breakfast skillet. Whip together some lunches and hit the river for a story-filled day.  While you're on the stream, our housekeepers are working hard at getting your cabin ready for your return.

Settle in as the sun drifts down the evening sky.  Kick back on the deck and watch the river go by.  Keep an eye on the evening's meal on the barbecue and get the fishing stories rolling. You and your close friends have a place to call home while staying on the world's largest spring creek.   

All of our vacation homes are inspected by the State of Montana, are Licensed Tourist Homes and conveniently located on or near Montana's world-class Missouri River.

Preventing the Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species

What Can You Do?

Aquatic invasive species (AIS), including diseases, are easily spread from one water body to the other. Anglers, boaters, construction workers, pond owners, gardeners, seaplane pilots, field workers - virtually anyone who works or plays in or around water can unknowingly transport these pests on their boats and equipment or allow them to spread via improper management practices. It takes only one mistake to potentially infest a new water body. To protect Montana’s waters and native aquatic species, please follow these rules and guidelines:

Boaters, Anglers, Paddlers, and Seaplane Pilots
CLEAN.  Completely remove all mud, water, and vegetation before leaving the access area.

Inspect your boat, trailer, and all gear. Pay attention to crevices and hidden areas.
Remove all vegetation (by hand or sprayer).
Remove all mud (use a pressurized power sprayer, found at most do-it-yourself car washes).  The hot water kills organisms and the pressure removes mud and vegetation. No need to use chemicals or soap.
Dispose of debris in trash or on dry land away from water or ramp.
DRAIN.  Drain all water from watercraft and equipment.

Drain or remove water from boat, bilge, live well, engine, internal compartments, and bait buckets by removing drain plugs before leaving the access area.
DRY.  Aquatic invaders can survive only in water and wet areas.

Dry your watercraft and fishing equipment thoroughly; this will kill most invasive species.  The longer you keep your watercraft, trailer, waders, and other equipment outside in the hot sun between fishing trips, the better.

Don't Release Live Animals

Never move live fish, invertebrates (snails or mussels) or plants from one body of water to another without FWP authorization, and don’t release live baitfish or aquarium fish into Montana waters.  You may think you are being kind by doing so, but in actuality you are breaking the law and damaging Montana’s aquatic resources.
The last time we had more than enough water to fill the reservoirs in Montana, this is what the Craig Campground looked like.  Faaa Lush.  Let's hope so.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.  Wait a minute.  Stop thinking about fishing for a minute, but just a minute.  How about going skiing?
What else do you have to do?  It's really, really cold outside.

Does it get any better than this?

There is a Winter Storm Warning for the Beartooth Mountains and foothills that goes into effect at 6 p.m. Wednesday and goes until midnight Saturday night.

As much is 18 to 24 inches of snow is expected to fall in the foothills and the mountains.

Elsewhere around Montana we have a Winter Storm Watch. That goes into effect Thursday afternoon and lasts through late Saturday night.

Places like Billings could measure 8 to 14 inches of snow other places around Montana could see as much is 12 to 24 inches of snow.

Plus we have a Wind Chill Advisory for northeastern Montana that goes from 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon to 5 p.m. Thursday. Wind chills could go as low as 10 to 35 below zero.

A new Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Glacier National Park and the Front Range the Rockies where 15 to 30 inches of snow may be possible through 5 p.m. Saturday.

The Doppler radar shows the first wave of moisture seemed to have overshot Billings and is heading right for Hardin and down to Sheridan, Wyo.

However, several waves of moisture are still to come, thanks to this upper-level, low-pressure cell in the Pacific Ocean sending wave after wave of moisture our way.

Snowfall estimates for Billings through 11 p.m. Thursday show were almost up to 5 inches but by 11 p.m. Friday we get up over 11 inches of snow and higher amounts elsewhere around the state.
