Welcome to The Hideout

Dutch & Flemish

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive upscale working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). In addition to riding, working cattle and fly-fishing, we offer an array of non-riding activities and adventures such as trapshooting, archery, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and with access to 95 horses, a one to one staff to guest ratio, and the owners and management actively involved with the well-being of our guests, we are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, staff (we speak 4 languages), horses, and personal, almost customized attention. We are very multi-cultural and diverse.

Every year The Hideout books full well in advance of the season, mostly because of word of mouth and returning guests. As we do not plan to increase the number of guests that we host each week, please book your vacation well ahead of the season.

Fly-Fishing Paradise


From May through October The Hideout has a full-time fly-fishing professional on staff. Our professional guide can teach you how to tie a fly and the techniques of fly-fishing. We have access to a variety of streams, ponds and casting ponds. Our program is fun for all including beginning and intermediate fly-fishers. Don’t worry about waders, tack or flies we have it all here for our guests.

Ride & Fish Days

One of our most popular activities is our Ride & Fish Program where we ride on horseback to a pristine mountain stream to go fishing. We fish for Brook trout in the mountains and this is the only time that we take our fish and prepare them on a wood fire for you to enjoy.


For all our other fishing we practice a catch & release policy.


Fly-fishing with our guide is included in your stay at The Hideout. The only thing you will need to buy is a daily fishing license.

Advanced Fly-fishing

Advanced, hard core fly-fishers who would like to fish everyday will find The Big Horn Mountains a fly-fishing paradise. You will seldom need to share the stream with others.

If you would to fish the nearby Greater Yellowstone Area, we can set you up with fly-fishing professionals in this area. This is billed separately.

We fish for Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat and Brook Trout.
