The Basics

Montana Rivers

It is fascinating that Montana has within its borders portions of the three major river drainage systems of North America.

From Triple Divide in Glacier National Park, raindrops falling only a few feet apart can take widely differing routes to the seas. Depending on which side of the three-sided point of land on which they fall, the raindrops may flow east into the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean; west to the Columbia River and the Pacific, or north and east into the rivers that lead to the Hudson Bay.

Rivers and streams that feed upon mountain snow runoff thrive throughout western Montana. They sing to hundreds of fisherman every year and effortlessly carry kayaks, rafts and inner tubes to all who seek beauty and adventure.
