We, Upper Canyon Outfitters (UCO), are a third generation, family operated guest ranch and outfitter located in the upper Ruby Valley. Our ranch is beautifully nestled between three mountain ranges, with the Ruby River meandering through our property. We are do our best to give you an experience you will not forget.

Our fly fishing guests have the exclusive use of over two miles of the Ruby River and a private spring fed pond on the ranch. Full time fly fishing guides are available at the ranch for instruction, float trips, walk/wade trips and information on water conditions. We offer guided walk/wade fly fishing on both the upper and lower Ruby River, as well as float trips on the Madison, Beaverhead, Big Hole, and Jefferson Rivers. The pristine waters in this area have an abundant population of wild rainbow, brown, arctic grayling, cutthroat and brook trout. Our fishing guests enjoy miles of fishing opportunities from tributary high mountains streams, to the limestone Ruby River or the larger Madison River - you will have a hard time deciding where to fish next.

You can relax in our cozy lodge which consists of six private guest rooms with private bathrooms, large dining area, and a charming living area with a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. Or you might like staying in one of our log cabins which are complete with kitchens and private bathrooms. Our hearty ranch meals are served family style in the lodge. If you are tired of being your own personal chef, cabin guests are welcome to join us at the lodge.

Because of our location in the Beaverhead National Forest, we can offer a number of different types of hunts, both guided and unguided. Our most popular hunts are elk, mule deer, white-tail deer and antelope. We are professional outfitters and guides, licensed with the State of Montana. All of our guided hunts are five days, one guide for every two hunters. On our unguided hunts, we show you the best access into an area and check with you each day on how effective the area was. Archery hunts are our specialty and our hunters have great experiences. We take all of the worry out of applying for you Montana State Hunting License, and help you coordinate these. We will help you long before you arrive in Montana and we are here to stay and help you long after you leave Montana.

We hope that you will join us in Montana.
