A model water agreement brokered by TU ensures the preservation of this magnificent fishery. Generated from snows that cling to the Bitterroot Mountains to the west and the Pintler Peaks of the Sapphire Mountains to the east, the forks of the Bitterroot drain more than 2.5 million acres of wilderness—superb country for elk, mule deer, bear, and cougar. High lakes, as clear and cold as a midnight sky, hold populations of cutthroat and brook trout. And the East and West Forks contain them as well. Lower reaches of these streams are worth fishing, not only for their gaily colored salmonoids, but for the spectacular setting that will steal your heart. Species: Brown, rainbow, cutthroat, brook. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
