Big Hole Braids

  • Location: Wise River, MT
  • Acres: 122± acres
  • Price: $1,300,000

Part of the larger Bent Rod Ranch on the Big Hole River, the Big Hole Braids is now available for sale. This picturesque fly fishing property includes nearly one mile of river frontage, at the base of the Dickie Hills, along the upper section of one of Montana’s premier blue ribbon trout streams, known for its Salmonfly hatch in mid June through early July. The Big Hole Braids offers a rare opportunity to secure significant river frontage on the Big Hole with a suitable building site.

The 122± acre property lies along a braided section of the river, two miles downstream from the Dickie Bridge, with multiple islands that feature excellent fly fishing opportunities and easy access to wade fishing during higher water months.

Extensive, fishable seams appear as the streams come together below the islands, and the local guides understand that this is one the river’s best areas for its Trico hatch every August.

The property’s elevated building site is tucked up into a draw that provides both privacy and expansive, 140-degree views of the river in both directions. There is also scattered timber on the south and west facing slopes, featuring excellent habitat for mule deer, elk, moose and waterfowl. 

Big Hole Braids is bordered by BLM land, providing extensive access to the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Johnson Creek Road passes through the property; however, there is no public access to the Big Hole on the property. Big Hole Braids is located less than four miles from Wise River, Montana—home to the iconic Wise River Club, the Complete Fly Fisher, the Big Hole Lodge, Troutfitters Inc fly shop, and the quaint and well-stocked Wise River Mercantile. Big Hole Braids is less than two hours from Bozeman, Montana and the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, plus an hour away from commercial air service in Butte.
