About the Blackfoot River

The Blackfoot River is, truly, classic trout water. Winding its way 146 miles, before its confluence with the Clark Fork River near Missoula, you will find endless deep pools, riffles, shelves, undercut banks and pocket water. The Blackfoot is every bit fishy as it is scenic. With good numbers of rainbows, browns, west slope cutthroat, brook trout and bull trout.

Fishing can be good on this river in the spring as early as April, with streamers and nymphs. Strong hatches all summer long will provide plenty of opportunities to throw attractor patterns or other dry flies. Then we like to go to larger streamers in the fall, looking for hungry brown trout.

Just a short drive from Craig, MT, the Blackfoot provides an excellent option for those Missouri River anglers that may not be familiar with the techniques of fishing a freestone. It can also provide slightly less technical dry fly fishing, for beginning to novice angler.
