A beautiful river by anyone’s standards, the Blackfoot has more than just good looks. It has sheer pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstrap guts, and a remarkable comeback story. If you are looking for the epitome of Western trout streams you’ll find it right here, nestled in the Blackfoot River Valley between the Swan and Garnet mountain ranges just east of the Continental Divide, and the thriving university town of Missoula on Highway 200. Types of Fish: Brown, Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brook, and Bull Trout, Northern Pike, Whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
