About: This photo is of, Randy and Samantha, owners of the Caddis Shack. This fishing lodge is a long time dream come true for our family. The Madison River and surrounding area has very special meaning to us. Randy's parents, Bill and Betty, came here in the 1970's and 1980's on fishing trips. Bill and Betty have since passed away. Betty helped build this house with her son Randy, and his wife Samantha, for future generations of fishermen to enjoy. This house was built in memory of Bill Arbogast. Over the past 12 years, Randy and Samantha, have been coming to West Yellowstone every summer to fish and enjoy all the area has to offer. It is our family's wish to share this beautiful and very special place with you, your family and friends. You are sure to leave with wonderful, lasting memories and great fishing stories! Please contact our property manager, Kathy Looney, for reservations or questions.
