1/5 Terrible

The Bitterroot River is experiencing heavy Runoff. It's not worth trying right now, the water level is way too high (see graphs below). We're expecting better conditions in June with the tributaries open back up.

We recommend you check out our other locations on our Fishing Reports: https://guide-x.io/blog/fishing-reports/region/list/Missoula.

If you want to hit one of our rivers, find our guides at https://guide-x.io.
