Lower Big Hole River Preserve is located just 7± miles southwest of the small town of Twin Bridges, one of the most classic trout towns in Montana. The Ruby, Beaverhead and Big Hole River confluence in “Twin” to form the Jefferson River, providing more trophy trout and more rivers to fish within a short drive than any town in the lower 48. Prairie meadow, native range land, large deciduous trees and lush river bottom form the 74± acres. Over one third of a mile of the Big Hole River traverses the northern boundary of the ranch with an additional quarter mile of the spring-influenced Big Hole Ditch running alongside the residence, providing 2 excellent fishable options. The property is accessed via paved Montana Highway 41 and then 2± miles of graveled County Road known as Pennington Road. Pennington Road, which crosses over the Big Hole River just upstream, provides a boat launch not far from the property and the road continues to Glen, near Interstate 15. A beautifully placed private home site next to the pond and along the Big Hole Ditch and a large barn and guest quarters above the barn complete this recreational retreat.
