Yellowstone River

“The Yellowstone River, a major tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 692 miles in length and is the longest undammed river in continental United States. Coursing through the spectacles of Yankee Jim Canyon, Paradise Valley and the picturesque city of Livingston, many consider it to be the quintessential Montana river. There is boating for the whitewater enthusiast, dedicated flyfisher or visitor searching for quiet waters.”

Beaverhead River

“A tributary to the Jefferson, the Beaverhead River is a favorite among anglers and boaters alike. Fed by the Clark Canyon Reservoir, the Beaverhead maintains adequate water levels even when many other state rivers are experience late-season lows. Near Twin Bridges, the Beaverhead is joined by the Ruby River and the Big Hole River, and continues as the Jefferson River north and east.”

Big Hole River

“The Big Hole River is a tributary of the Jefferson River, approx. 153 miles long, in southwestern Montana in the United States. It rises in Skinner lake in the Beaverhead National Forest in the Beaverhead Mountains of the Bitterroot Range at the continental divide along the Montana-Idaho border in western Beaverhead County.”

Bighorn River

“The Bighorn River is a tributary of the Yellowstone, approximately 461 miles long, in the western United States in the states of Wyoming and Montana. The upper reaches of the Bighorn, south of the Owl Creek Mountains in Wyoming, are known as the Wind River. The two rivers are sometimes referred to as the Wind/Bighorn. The Wind River officially becomes the Bighorn River at the Wedding of the Waters, on the north side of the Wind River Canyon near the town of Thermopolis.”

Gallatin River

“The Gallatin River is a tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 120 miles long, in the U.S. states of Wyoming and Montana. It is one of three rivers, along with the Jefferson and Madison, that converge near Three Forks, Montana, to form the Missouri. It rises in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, in northwestern Wyoming, in the Gallatin Range of the Rocky Mountains.”

Jefferson River

“The Jefferson River is a tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 77 miles long, in the U.S. state of Montana. The Jefferson River and the Madison River form the official beginning of the Missouri at Missouri Headwaters State Park near Three Forks. It is joined 0.6 miles downstream (northeast) by the Gallatin. The Lewis and Clark Expedition visited the site on 28 July 1805.”

Madison River

“The Madison River is a headwater tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 183 miles long, in Wyoming and Montana. Its confluence with the Jefferson and Gallatin rivers near Three Forks, Montana form the Missouri River. The Madison rises in Park County in northwestern Wyoming at the confluence of the Firehole and Gibbon rivers, a location known as Madison Junction in Yellowstone National Park.”

Missouri River

“The Missouri River is a tributary of the Mississippi River, and is the longest river in the United States of America. The Missouri likely originates at Brower’s Spring at the upper reaches of the Jefferson, before joining the confluence of the Madison, Jefferson, and Gallatin rivers in Montana. From this point, it flows through its valley south and east for 2,540 miles.”

Smith River

“The Smith River is a tributary of the Missouri River, in central Montana, in the United States. It rises in southern Meagher County in the Castle Mountains and flows northwest in the valley between the Big Belt and Little Belt mountains, past White Sulphure Springs and past Smith River State Park. It turns north-northwest, and is joined by Hound Creek in Cascade County, and joins the Missouri approximately 9 miles southwest of Great Falls.”
