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.
The Golden Stone Inn will come to life in May. It is being built with you, our extended family, in mind. As you walk up to the main lodge, you will notice the outdoor fire pit is inviting you to sit down and relax with a beer and cigar after an invigorating day on the river. Upon entering you are welcomed; we have been expecting you! You notice the incredible selection of our favorite local brews and a variety of wines for any taste. This place is different. You have a warm, comfortable feeling. As you settle in, you notice the patios and chairs outside each of the rooms. Another perfect place for that beer and cigar! Upon entering the cabin, the wader hangers and the rod rack are perfectly situated. You hop on your computer to check out the latest fishing report from Big Sky Anglers as wi-fi internet is available throughout the property.
Peering out of your cabin to the outdoor fire pit and you see them! A few of the Big Sky Anglers fishing guides have dropped by. They are there merely enjoying some time with avid fisherman, swapping stories with their friends. There is no place they would rather be than with their own kind, their extended family.
West Yellowstone is a special place to us, and we know it is to you too. More than just a place to rest your head at the end of the day, we hope the Golden Stone Inn will be a place where we can cater to you, our extended family, and share with you all of the amazing things that make West Yellowstone so special.
Head on over to the new website and take a look at the Golden Stone Inn. It’s a work in progress. So, check back often for updates, and be sure to follow and like the new social media pages to stay current on this exciting project.
We look forward to welcoming you to your new home away from home in West Yellowstone!
