Dome Mountain Ranch Private Trophy Lake
Trout Fishing for Our Guests

Located directly on Dome Mountain Ranch-A sure way to beat the high water-big fish-big fun!

Nestled within the awe-inspiring panoramic Beartooth mountains are Vanessas and Thelma's Lake, which recently attained national media attention on the Travel Channel and has been featured on the cover of Outdoor Life Magazine. These spring fed alpine lakes are heavily inhabited with a unique strain of rainbow trout coveted for their unmatched aggressive feeding and fighting abilities.

Many fish top the scales at eight pounds or more and will burn a fly reel right down to the backing in seconds. Spending a day or all week on this lake can well be a memory of relaxation and smiles branded into the soul of even the most travelled fly fisher.  Our private trophy lakes are for the exclusive use of Dome Mountain Ranch guests which makes their solitude all the more appealing.  These lakes are great place for even the first time fly fisher to have a prime opportunity at trophy size wild fish.
