Upper Canyon Outfitters - Alder

Upper Canyon Outfitters (UCO) is a third generation, family operated guest ranch and outfitter in the upper Ruby Valley. We beautifully nestled our ranch between three mountain ranges, with the Ruby River meandering through our property. Our goal is to give you an experience you will not forget. Our cozy lodge comprises six private guest rooms, each with private bathrooms.

Our fly-fishing guests have the exclusive use of over two miles of the Ruby River and a private spring-fed pond on the ranch. Full-time fly-fishing guides are available at the ranch for instruction, float trips, walk/wade trips and information on water conditions.

Our most popular hunts are elk, mule deer, white-tail deer and antelope. We are professional outfitters and guides, licensed with the State of Montana.

We hope you will join us in Montana. Visit our websites and socials for more detailed information!
