Much of the Jefferson River remains as wild and remote as the day Lewis and Clark first encountered it in 1804. Cottonwood bottoms, thick shrub fields, and expansive hay meadows isolated the river from civilization along much of its length. The abundant wildlife and waterfowl that use the river and its banks, only add to the Jefferson’s appeal. The Jefferson flows for about 70 miles northeast from its origin near Twin Bridges to its confluence with the Madison and Gallatin rivers at the headwaters of the Missouri River outside of Three Forks. A broad, multi-channeled river, the Jefferson has a gentle gradient and deep water. Key species: Rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, and whitefish.
