In the heart of southwest Montana, Ennis (pop. 860) in Madison County is located on the banks of the Madison River in the heart of the world's best fly fishing country. It offers the unusual combination of fishing and hunting outfitters, artists and rodeo. Ennis is also a hub for surrounding communities and visitors to our area. Dozens of businesses provide support services for residents and tourists including a new emergency care clinic and hospital, groceries, gas, auto repair, library, movie theater, restaurants and lodging.
The Madison Valley is known for its pleasantly cool summer days and very low humidity. Fall is punctuated by the change in nature's colors as the Aspen trees turn to gold and the pasture land to beige. The nights and mornings are crisp and the days filled with sunshine. Wintertime brings snow and cold weather, but the sun continues to shine throughout the season, creating a unique and quiet beauty. Spring rains herald the warming trend and the completion of nature's cycle of life for the flowers and the abundant wildlife… in paradise. (Source: http://www.ennischamber.com)
