The 722 ± acre Ruby River Ranch is a unique ranch that combines high quality agricultural production with world class recreational amenities, making it an affordable ranch to own on an annual basis as well as a wonderful ranch for families and friends to share new adventures and build lasting memories. The Ruby River meanders through the ranch for just less than 2 miles and provides some of the finest fly fishing for large trout available in Montana, in a private and exclusive setting. The Ruby is unique because it is so small it is rarely floated, yet because of its water quality the trout grow large. Many hours can be spent on the Ruby River Ranch casting to rising brown trout and rarely see another person.

The ranch also has a gorgeous ranch compound built by the current owner. The structures are of the highest quality materials and craftsmanship with recycled timber and natural stone, just what you would want on your Montana ranch. There is plenty of room for you and your family and friends to gather and create memories in the midst of one of the most beautiful valleys in the Northern Rockies. And yet, in most years the ranch pays for itself because of the agricultural production. The current owner leases the agriculture to a neighbor which makes it very easy to own, in addition to being affordable.
