“Big Hole Country”
Review of Big Hole River

Reviewed 8 September 2014

If you drive from I-15 west onto route 43 west along Big Hole River toward route 93, you won't be disappointed. You'll drive thru a wide, deep valley, Montana's Big Hole Country, a beautiful area with 6,000 foot elevation praise basin flanked by snowcapped peaks. Cattle ranches and pastures filled with piles of haystacks. Pass thru tiny town of Wisdom just hour drive from Bitterroot Valley. Solitary road. It's hard to less than 80 MPH. Don't miss it.

We floated 3 times from Salmon Fly to Browns, saw moose, golden eagles, bald eagles, deer with fauns, various ducks and other birds, and caught fish. Very peaceful---pretty much cannot see the highway or the road

I have spent plenty of time on the Big Hole river and is that valley and it remains unspoiled and offers adventure on the water as well as in the surrounding Mountains. Also, the Anaconda Pintlar Wilderness is located there as well as the Deer Lodge and Beaverhead National forests. The Wise River scenic byway bisects the Pioneer Mountains and is well worth exploring. The towns of Wise River and Wisdom are certainly worth a visit and a cold beer. The open vistas and welcoming scenery is the old west as it was and as it should be. Fishing, hunting, hiking and just plain hanging out is what this place is all about. In the summer be sure to bring your fly rod and some insect repellent. Dont forget the camera. Cell service is non-existent. Services are very limited. There is one road, hwy. 43.
