A century ago men and women came to this area to lay claim to the wealth of gold mines and to explore the wide open ranges of the wild west and the richness of its majestic mountains, crystalline rivers, lakes and streams.
Today, even though the gold is just panned for fun in the old ghost towns nearby, much of the appeal of the country surrounding Crane Meadow Lodge remains the same. An unspoiled, pristine wilderness, abundant with impressive wildlife, and an extensive variety of unsurpassed trout-laden fishing waters continue to draw men and women from near and far.

Crane Meadow Lodge is located at the edge of an 8,000 acre ranch on the Ruby River just outside the town of Twin Bridges in Southwestern Montana. On the ranch you'll discover the rich ecological diversity in 12 miles of exclusively private, easy wading in Leonard Spring Creek, Mill Creek and the Ruby River. Within three miles of the ranch lies the confluence of the Beaverhead, Big Hole and Ruby Rivers, which together, form the Jefferson River.
