It is fair to say that the main attraction here at the Gros Ventre River Ranch is our horses, however we are proud to offer so much more than just horseback riding! Our location allows our guests to participate in a wide variety of activities here on the ranch, as well as have access to endless opportunities in the Jackson Hole Valley.

Our two mile stretch of private access to the Gros Ventre River allows anglers a chance to fish without interruption. We have all the equipment that you need here, and you are welcome to bring our fishing guide along for some pointers! If fishing is on your bucket list, but you are a beginner you don’t need to worry! We offer a casting clinic for instruction, and we have a knowledgeable and friendly fishing guide on staff who is always happy to teach! In addition to the river, we also have two stocked ponds on property, so your chances of catching a fish are excellent!
