Bitterroot River Professional Review and Guide
"Rumor has it that Joe Brooks, the celebrated angler, world-wide traveler, and prolific writer, once penned his ten choices for the best trout streams in the world.
The Bitterroot was one of the chosen few. Notwithstanding, the Bitterroot has not attracted the national publicity other Montana streams have. Unfortunately for them, there are a lot more locals in the Bitterroot Valley than there used to be. Key species: Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, cutthroat trout, bull trout, mountain whitefish, largemouth bass, squawfish, and northern pike."
