Lyndy Caine, Owner
Growing up nearby, spending her summers on the Lake, the Firehole Ranch was always a special place for Lyndy. So, when she learned in 1999 that her beloved Firehole Ranch was destined to be sliced into 20-acre ranchettes, she couldn’t stand by and watch. Well aware of the Ranch’s long, rich history, she chose to save the pristine 640 acres by purchasing it herself. In doing so, she managed to preserve not only the original 640 acres that were first settled in the 1860s, but she also rescued the historic structures as well as the intimate fly fishing experience.
Rather than providing a modern day experience out in the wilds of Montana, Lyndy chose to maintain the exceptional opportunity to completely escape the modern world. A rarity today, Lyndy believes the Firehole Ranch exists to teach us all a lesson about life, fly fishing and what is truly important. She and her staff have a keen understanding of the symbiotic relationship of the Ranch with the land around it, and make every effort to practice good stewardship and sustainable practices. “Our greatest satisfaction comes from watching our visitors decompress and become centered again as they reconnect with themselves and the natural world around them,” Lyndy remarks. “We make every effort to ensure that we can continue to provide this extraordinary escape for generations to come."
