From an unmatched vantage point on the banks of the fabled river, Forrester’s Bighorn River Lodge watches over the passing of each season marking them with fish brought to hand, birds flushed, and unforgettable meals shared.

This is the way at Forrester’s Bighorn River Lodge. Located directly on the Bighorn River, this full-service fly-fishing and hunting lodge meets the needs of the savviest traveler. Likewise with all-inclusive packages to Á la carte combinations of fly-fishing and upland bird hunting the needs of the most discriminating sportsmen also are satisfied.
