Incredible backdrop and even better fishing.
The Jefferson Rivers starts at the confluence of the Beaverhead and Big Hole Rivers. The Jefferson flows north to the town of Whitehall and then east until it joins the Madison and Gallatin Rivers to form the Missouri River near Three Forks. The Jefferson doesn’t fish well every day, but we know the conditions to look for and race to the Jefferson when the situation is ideal. The hardest pulling rainbows that we know of and some oversized brown trout live in the Jeff as it is affectionately known.
Dry flies, streamers, and dry/dropper rigs all have their time and place on the Jefferson. A beautiful valley river with the Tobacco Root Mountains as a backdrop makes the Jefferson a favorite of our angling clients.
