THE GOLDEN STONE INN

West Yellowstone is home for Big Sky Anglers. Not because we all happened to end up here on a whim, but because West Yellowstone is located in the heart of what is arguably the greatest fly fishing region on earth.  We have chased trout with a fly rod all across this planet, and West Yellowstone is where we choose to live and work. We enjoy easy access to famous and lesser known waters in three states (Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming) as well as throughout Yellowstone National Park.  The diversity of waters around here is truly astounding, and finding good or great fishing any day between April and November is usually just a matter of knowing where to look. One lifetime is not enough to explore and learn all of the rivers, streams, spring creeks, lakes, and ponds within a two hour drive.  Expand that driving range to three hours, and 10 lifetimes would probably not be enough!

 Within this vast area of remarkable fishing there is no more strategic a location to serve as your home base for a fly fishing trip than the town of West Yellowstone. It is truly in the center of all the prime fishing waters giving you maximum options and flexibility. No matter what conditions you have during your trip, or what fishing situations you’re hoping to find, West Yellowstone has options throughout the entire fishing season.  

 We love nothing more than sharing all that West Yellowstone and the surrounding area has to offer to visiting anglers, but for years we have struggled to find a lodging solution for our guests that allows us to provide the personalized, unique experience that we want. The Golden Stone Inn was born from this desire to provide a customized, unforgettable experience that goes above and beyond our guests’ expectations.
