The Jefferson River is a beautiful and unique angling spot for fly fishing in Montana that starts at the confluence of the Ruby, Big Hole, and Beaverhead Rivers and ends where it meets the Madison and Gallatin. It runs for about 80 miles from Twin Bridges to Three Forks, surrounded by rugged and unspoiled landscapes.
The quality of the Jefferson River fly fishing experience varies yearly depending on winter snowpack and spring moisture. Although the river faces heavy irrigation pressure during the summer, it remains a classic Montana fly fishing destination, offering both solitude and big fish opportunities.
