When the surrounding region is enveloped in snow, the Lewis Clark Valley residents are hitting the links. Golf is a year round sport here with some locals playing golf everyday. Gather your buddies and spend a few days working on your handicap. We have 4 courses, 2 private and 2 public, to choose from as well as Gateway Golf Center, a pro shop, teaching and practice facility on the river. Each has its own unique personality and is equally challenging with panoramic views.

Fishing & Hunting
Few places offer the variety and accessibility of outdoor diversions that are found right in our backyard. You don’t even have to leave town to find some of the best fishing spots for trolling, spinning, bait casting and fly-fishing. Five public boat ramps and two marinas are located within a few miles. The spring and summer month’s fast action catch is bass and trout. During the fall it is steelhead. The canyon has a healthy number of North America’s largest fresh water fish, the great white sturgeon, which can reach lengths up to eight feet. You can’t take one home but catching one could be the highlight of your trip. LEARN MORE >
