The Blackfoot river, or “Big Blackfoot” as it is often referred to as, is quite possibly the most well known river in the state of Montana.  Made increasingly popular by the 1992 film, “A River Runs Through It” starring Brad Pitt, the Blackfoot is a bucket list destination for many.  Home to westslope cutthroats, rainbows, browns and bull trout, this river runs fast, cold and clear for much of the year.  Prolific insect hatches, steep canyons, wilderness beauty and eager trout are all reasons that anglers return to this iconic river each season.
