The Shields River Fishing House is situated on ± 39 acres with approximately 1,600 feet of pristine trout waters on the Shields River known for brown and rainbow trout. Anchored by vistas of the Crazy, Absaroka and Bridger mountains, this spectacular property is graced with a lush riparian habitat, that winds along the riverbank, providing sanctuary to moose, red fox, antelope, mink, beaver, weasel, white-tail and mule deer, bobcat, lots of migratory birds plus golden eagles, bald eagles, hawks, chickadees, magpies, ravens, an occasional elk and many more.
Perched on a rolling bench overlooking the sub-irrigated hayfield that lies between the house and the river is the sun filled contemporary 1980’s home with ± 2,700 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, wrap-around deck with panoramic views and attached 2-car garage.
The Shields River Fishing House is located approximately two miles north of the rural ranching community of Clyde Park where farms that date back to the late 1800’s are scattered amongst the expansive landscape. Twenty-two miles to the south is the vibrant town of Livingston. The Bozeman International Airport is approximately one hour away. Bridger Bowl Ski area is about 35 minutes away.
This tranquil setting lends itself to full or part-time living for avid fishing and outdoor enthusiasts.
ABOUT THE SHIELDS RIVER
The Shields River Valley is an extremely valuable recreation resource for fly-fishing and wildlife viewing. Because the Shields River flows through private property for most of its length with few public access points, this river is not as heavily fished as the nearby Boulder and Yellowstone rivers.
The Shields River begins in the Gallatin National Forest in the Crazy Mountains and flows for over 50 miles through the very broad and scenic Shields Valley to the Yellowstone River just east of Livingston MT.
