Sam's Big Spring Creek Ranch near Lewistown, MT is one of those indescribably beautiful places that invoke memories of fishing and hunting in Montana that last a lifetime. Opportunity knocks now as this incredible, diversified ranch is offered for sale.

Located just minutes from Lewistown, this 500+ acre ranch boasts a combination of irrigated hayland and pasture with incredible cover for pheasant and upland birds as well as whitetail and mule deer, which abound.

Big Spring Creek flows through oxbows with a clarity unmatched, creating a fly fisherman's dream. This unique river is one of the largest artesian springs in the world flowing up to 64,000 gallons per minute at a constant 52 degrees, so clear and pure that the town of nearby Lewistown needs not treat the water for drinking. 

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks estimates run as high as 3,000 lbs of catchable fish per mile, with the record fish reaching 33 inches.  This river is open year round to fishing.  As fall approaches hunting fever brings the ranch to life with unrivaled bird and big game opportunities.

New wood posts lining the driveway coming into the home set the scene plus new gravel and grading on the entry road.  The private pond just off the deck of the main home was landscaped and cleaned last year.   All areas of the ranch show the pride in ownership of a well kept ranch.  Recent improvements  include new paint and stain on both homes and the horse barn, as well as new 50 year shingles on the cabin and horse barn.  The cabin was professionally sealed last year.

Lewistown and the ranch are near the center of Montana, approximately an hour and a half from the Great Falls and Billings airports.  Lewistown itself has a great airport, large enough to accommodate larger personal aircraft with service and maintenance available. To learn more about Lewistown and the surrounding area, visit EnjoyLewistown.com

The area topography is dominated by the mountain ranges that surround a large natural basin. Known as the Judith Basin, this was the original home of the cowboy artist Charlie Russell.

The vast prairies of eastern Montana give way near Lewistown to the lush mountains and clearwater streams that greeted Lewis and Clark as they first explored this bountiful area. 

Close to town are the North and South Moccasin mountains, east of town the Judith mountains extend to the prairie.  South of town are the Big Snowies, and to the west the Little Belt mountains, with the circle unfolding on the far west to the Highwood mountains and Square Butte.  All of these beautiful mountains surround incredible, fertile rolling plains bisected by clear mountain streams. 

Paradise ...... or home ..... as we call it.
