General Information

General Notes:

 

The East Fork of the Bitterroot River flows west from within the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness to just south of Conner, MT where it joins the West Fork of the Bitterroot River to form the Bitterroot River.

The upper East Fork flows west through timbered mountain terrain, while the lower portion runs through colorful cottonwood bottom-lands. During the spring runoff, the river becomes a dangerous combination of fast water and snags.  Brown, rainbow, cutthroat, Dolly, and brook trout are limited to areas with good cover, such as under-portions of the river between Sula and Conner.  Winter fishing for whitefish is popular and productive (the river is closed to trout fishing in the winter).  The catch along the East Fork is fairly evenly divided between bait, spin, and fly fisherman.
