Big Sandy Lodge

Fishing and Horseback Riding
Lake and Destination Mileage from Lodge

From Big Sandy Lodge, the Fremont, Lowline, Highline, and Big Sandy trails will take you to 40 different lakes. 
Six different species of trout await the avid angler! Most lakes are within 8 miles of the lodge. Some of the more remote lakes are within 15 miles. How early can you get in? That depends, of course, on the weather each year and when the snow melts. Some years we can get up to the lodge in mid to late May and the snow doesn't fly again until mid-October. We can't predict the exact date until we get into the spring. Access by horse begins in June, before then we hike in. Great fishing is available in the nearby lake just a few steps from your cabin door! Please call for more information if you want to get in very early in the season. 
We do not sell fishing licenses at the lodge, so please be sure to get your licenses in town before you come up.
