The Clark Fork River

The Clark Fork River, named for William Clark of the Lewis & Clark Journey, is the main drainage of central western Montana and collects all the other waters as it heads westward toward the Columbia Basin and eventually the Pacific Ocean. The upper Clark Fork, stemming from Butte to Missoula, is a small, winding and increasingly improving fishery where you can find some real solitude and great streamer and terrestrial fishing to a primarily brown trout populatioin.

The lower Clark Fork, below Missoula, is a larger river where consistent mayfly and caddis hatches provide great headhunting opportunities to some bruising rainbows, browns and cutthroat trout.  

The Clark Fork is a great destination river or a nice compliment to a traveling trip where you would fish two or three other rivers in the area.
