Big Hole River
Sections of the Big Hole River
The Big Hole can be broken into three distinct sections, the upper, the middle or canyon section, and the lower. The upper section flows through a high-elevation valley, slowly meandering its way downstream with 360 degrees of mountain views. The middle or canyon section the river picks up steam and flows through areas of high canyon walls. The third section is the lower river. Here with its cottonwood-lined banks, the river slows down a bit before its confluence with the Beaverhead. Every section of the Big Hole offers different opportunities to catch fish and feels like you are almost on an entirely different river.
