A ribbon of green slicing through parched land, the Bighorn rushes past scenic bluffs and thick cottonwood bottoms, providing anglers some of Montana's best trout fishing. Good fishing on warm winter days and in early spring. This is one of Montana's warmest areas. Hazards include snags and occasional logjams, swift flows in the upper section. Sudden high winds associated with storms. Three diversion dams (portage necessary). Permits are required.
