One of the West’s Great Fly Fishing Ranches
Three Rivers Ranch is a family run fly-fishing destination neighboring the Targhee National Forest. We are an hour’s drive northeast of Idaho Falls, Idaho. From complimentary airport transfers to return trip drop-off, your every need is seen to by our efficient and amiable staff.
The Three Rivers Ranch Lodge dining room is a historic building in its own right. The lodge itself, dates back to the early 1930’s when Fred and Berta Lewies, Lonnie’s grandparents homesteaded in Warm River and started a family business. Back then, the lodge served as the base for Fred’s store and the Warm River Inn. During this time the railroad ran right through the lodge property with tourists on their way to Yellowstone National Park.
In 1974 the lodge was refurbished to keep the same charm as the original building. Three Rivers Ranch guests now enjoy gourmet meals and swap stories of their day on the river in this charmingly historic lodge.
The lodge’s bar of polished logs and weathered wood is a natural setting for making new friends and for catching up with old ones. Wide board floors and Oriental rugs, leather furniture, all tied together by an immense coffee table create the perfect atmosphere for unwinding while you sip an after dinner brandy.
