For The Fisher Folk
Bring your family and your pole. You will find excellent trout fishing on the Dearborn and Sun Rivers, and the headwaters of the Blackfoot, the setting of the book on which Robert Redford based his 1992 movie  "A River Runs Through It". Fish in all these rivers, primarily cutthroat, rainbow, and brown, feed aggressively on dry flies and small nymphs Our catch-and-release record is 105 fish caught in three hours.
