The river was filled with grass when we were there, but the fish are in there. Go into this expecting to clean your hook alot.

Drift fished 2 sections of the river on 3 different days with excellent guides from Frontier Anglers. Caught many (lost count) fish both drivting and from a few stops along the banks. Fish ranged from 9" to over 20" and were healthy and beautiful. Will do this again.

Have to admist a bit of prejudice, as I live along the banks of the Beaverhead. But for river controlled by a Dam (Clark Canyon), it's a pretty sweet one. Something for everyone. Good fishing, good boating. Nice scenery. Lots of short day floats available. Pretty dependable water. Easy boating. Good access from FWP sites. Favorite thing to do: either... More

enjoy the fishing. Just head out of town and fish your way back in. There is a fishing area just about 1/4 mile out of town.
