The three Paradise Valley Spring Creeks are an annual favorite of local and traveling anglers. The creeks themselves are private, but by paying a rod fee anglers can "book" their rod for a day of fishing. Rates vary by season with summer rates being the highest. The three creeks, Nelson's, DePuy's, and Armstrong's/O'Hair's offer challenging fishing in one of the most beautiful valleys in Montana, the Paradise Valley. DePuy's is the longest of the three creeks, then Armstrong's/O'Hairs, and then Nelson's. Anglers looking for selective fish in a technical piece of water should try their hand at some of these trout. If the fishing proves too difficult there is always the backdrop of the snow-capped Absorokas to enthrall the spirit. For more information about fishing these creeks contact the outfitters and shops listed.
