Rock Creek Cattle Ranch is a generational ranch with 2,770± acres situated along the famous Rock Creek fishery banks. Grassy benches, timbered draws, rich, green meadows, and 1.5 miles of river frontage border some of Montana’s most popular trout fisheries. The western boundary of the ranch backs up to Forest Service Property and provides almost endless adventures.
Rock Creek is the only “Blue Ribbon” trout fishery west of the Continental Divide. Large brown and native cutthroat trout are the two primary species in the fishery. The river originates high in the alpine meadows and flows through canyons and lush forests. Anglers can find fish on any given day, depending on the conditions. Georgetown Lake is well-known for its large, brown cutthroat, and brook trout. The lake is open all-year-around, so anglers enjoy fishing in all seasons. East-Fork Reservoir is a lesser-known spot to fish, but those who discover it will be impressed with the fishing quality.
Additionally, the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness Area’s untamed area is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the continental United States. Situated on the continental divide, elevations range from 5,100 ft in the river bottoms to over 10,893 ft on West Goat Peak. Elk, deer, moose, and Big Horn Sheep thrive off this fertile landscape. Rock Creek Cattle Ranch has been a historic cattle ranch and has provided for generations of families. The ranch has approximately 532± acres of senior water rights and abundant water for livestock. The ground produces approximately 800 tons of grass hay annually.
