Family Fishing Vacations in a cabin on Montana Rock Creek

February 10th, 2013 by Kristi Spoon

Fishing at 2

Our stretch of water here on Rock Creek offers something for every fisher:  man, woman or child!!

Staying at Spoon’s Rock Creek Ranch is like a private retreat for your family on the waters of Montana’s Blue Ribbon trout stream.  This cozy Cabin or the Pintlar View house are a perfect setting for a family or groups who want an opportunity to spend a weekend or longer enjoying the great Montana Outdoors.

The Middle Fork of Rock Creek is an ideal spot to let your younger ones explore fishing.  There is a wonderful stretch just outside the back door where it is easy for them to get their pole to the water and experience catching a fish. The East Fork has ponds, created by busy beavers, filled with hungry trout and often complimented by blue heron, sand hill cranes, osprey and Canadian geese.  Be sure to look towards the blue sky above as bald and golden eagles nest in the canyon beyond.

When you are not fishing the creek, there is plenty for your family to do close by. Gem Mountain Sapphire Mine is about 5 miles up the road.  You and your family can hunt for sapphires – you can grab a bucket of sapphire gravel, belly up to the wash trough and find Montana Sapphires.  Depending how you handle your gravel and wash screen this
might just be the dirtiest good clean family fun you can have.  We are also just moments away from Georgetown Lake, Discovery Basin ski area, ghost towns and the town of Philipsburg.

Spoon’s Rock Creek Ranch

August 17th, 2010 by Kristi Spoon

Think of the words “log cabin,” and you probably envision a little log house sitting next to a creek or lake, with the fire burning and the smell of the Rocky Mountains just off your deck. At Spoon’s Rock Creek Ranch the homey feel of cedar logs and rich cabin décor bring that and more.

Spoon’s Rock Creek Ranch is 15 miles outside of Philipsburg, a town rich with history in mining and ranching. Today this delightful little town of about 900 residents is a fun place to visit.

Rock Creek is Montana’s premiere Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. Its water runs cold and most of the time clear even during hot summer months making it a tremendous home for rainbow, brown, cutthroat and brook trout. With miles of stream wandering through the property the fishing is amazing; whether just off the deck, up or downstream, or off to the east fork of Rock Creek, where beaver ponds dance with daily hatches & hungry fish.
