Beaverhead River

Beaverhead River Professional Review and Guide

"Sinuous and serpentine with a jungle of vegetation, the Beaverhead meanders through rock canyons and broad valleys, and offers much of interest for Lewis and Clark aficionados.

Complex fishing and floating regulations are in place to alleviate crowding and overfishing. Many sections restrict the number of outfitted boats in any given reach. Excellent bird-watching or waterfowl hunting in season north of Dillon."
