*(Scroll down to the bottom for details about skeet shooting and archery offered by Eagle Ridge Ranch for an additional charge.)
What's better than fishing and riding horses on the same day? Having them both available at the same location! Spend part of your day riding horses at the ranch and the other half fishing for free! The fishing is catch and release, and you can use a rod or a reel (ask about our loaner poles if you don't have your own). The best part about fishing on the ranch is that no fishing license is required on our private property!
The Eagle Ridge Ranch has several paddle boats, canoes, and rowe boats for guests who are looking for something more to do before or after their horse ride. Life jackets are provided (and required) at the ranch.
Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy by the lake after your horse ride, then spend the rest of the day boating or fishing on the water. There is a Subway restaurant just North of the ranch off Highway 20, or we also recommend stopping by Ernie's Deli on your way out of West Yellowstone.
Young children (and those young at heart) will love spending part of the day catching frogs, toads, and occasionally salamanders in the streams and ponds at the Eagle Ridge Ranch. Every child should have the opportunity to catch a frog themselves at some point in their life, and the ranch is an ideal habitat for such amphibians. And yes, we have modern bathrooms with hot water to wash your hands afterward. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit or a pair of shorts to wade in the water!
