When you think about fishing in Montana several rivers come to mind, but this list
names some of the best.
You won't be able to make it to all these rivers, but if you're going fishing in Montana
you better check out some of these waterways.
1.) Gallatin River
Teeming with mountain whitefish, brown trout, and rainbow trout, the Gallatin flows
north through the Gallatin Canyon merges with the Madison and Jefferson rivers near
Three Forks.
2.) Yellowstone River
The Yellowstone is the largest un-dammed river in the lower 48. Come witness its
sheer beauty and fish for northern pike, sauger, and channel catfish.
3.) Blackfoot River
The Blackfoot is fueled by snow and spring water as it stretches across western
Montana offering rainbow, bull, and brown trout.
4.) Missouri River
When the Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson converge you get the Missouri which offers
northern pike, yellow perch, and black crappie as it stretches across eastern Montana.
5.) Big Hole River
Running about 150 miles through southwest Montana the mighty Big Hole River
contains throngs of native Arctic Grayling an beautiful Rainbow Trout.
These five rivers are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fishing in Montana.
Once you check out some of these rivers you'll get a better sense of what makes Big
Sky Country great.
