About the bighorn river
The Bighorn River is a 461-mile long river that flows through Montana and Wyoming. The river has a rich history dating back to the early Native American tribes who used the river for food and transportation. In the early 1800s, fur trappers and explorers traveled up the river, followed by farmers and ranchers who settled in the region. Today, the Bighorn River is important for irrigation, agriculture, and recreation. The river is fed by several reservoirs, including the Yellowtail Dam, which was constructed in the 1960s to provide flood control and hydroelectric power. The Bighorn River is a popular destination for fly fishing, with rainbow and brown trout being the most sought-after species. The river is also popular for rafting and kayaking, with several companies offering guided tours.
