About Bighorn River Montana Fishing and Hunting
“The Bighorn River is a fly-fishing experience every angler should take advantage of, and it’s one that everyone from the inexperienced to the most adept can enjoy. I give Eagle Nest, its staff and guides, my total endorsement.”
~ Leigh H. Perkins, Chairman, ORVIS
“I hunted for three days and wish I had booked a longer trip. The area is beautiful and the birds were everywhere. Eagle Nest is a first rate operation all the way from the dogs, to the birds, to the food. I would definitely recommend this lodge to a friends.”
~ Jack Duley in “The Bird Hunting Report”
