This river of contrasts yields rainbows in the upper runs and browns below to those who figure it out. Issuing from the base of Clark Canyon Reservoir 20 miles or so south of Dillon, the Beaverhead flows north-by-northeast for more than 50 miles before joining the Big Hole below Twin Bridges to form the Jefferson. The upper stretch from the reservoir down to Barrett’s diversion dam is considered to be prime rainbow water. Below the dam, the river warms and brown trout predominate. The Beaverhead is literally two different rivers. Species: Brown, cutthroat, rainbow. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
