This tiny town in the valley between the Tobacco Root Mountains, the Gravelly Range, and the Madison Range is a bit off the beaten path, but it's well worth the trip. Known as a working cowboy town with a serious fishing habit, Ennis is perfect for hard-working people with a lot of spirit and love for the land. Cradled by the Madison River and just south of Ennis Lake, a shallow and pleasantly warm lake, Ennis is a destination for fly-fishing and water recreation. The Madison River is famous for its rainbow and brown trout, and Yellowstone National Park is just an hour south. Originally homesteaded during the gold rush by William Ennis, the town has a long ranching history. Cattle and sheep ranches flank the river, and the town is full of families that have made their living here for generations. Ennis residents enjoy themselves in a few distinctly Montanan fashions. The community has long supported a micro-distillery that offers a Montana honey moonshine. Every 4th of July, the town gathers for what is considered one of the best small town parades in Montana, and there are rodeo, hunting, fly-fishing festivals through the year as well. But Ennis is not all cowboy culture, it also hosts an arts festival and has a small bustling downtown with restaurants serving diverse cuisines.
