Fly-fishing at Alta Ranch in Montana – It’s easy to get hooked by the lure of the Bitterroot region.

Ever since the 1992 movie "A River Runs Through It," I’ve wanted to go fly-fishing in Montana, and I recently found a ranch hideaway that fit the bill. After four days of nonstop fishing, I have a sore shoulder, a scarred finger — I hooked myself with a fly — and my own Norman Maclean stories.

Alta Ranch is a 150-acre property tucked in the shadow of the Bitterroot Mountains in southwestern Montana. Guests at its four cabins and one log home can try their luck in a stocked, catch-and-release trout pond or on a stretch of the west fork of the Bitterroot River that runs through the ranch.
