Montana River Series - Blackfoot River - Montana Art


Original painting on canvas. 30” x 40” . Unframed.

The Blackfoot River begins at the Continental Divide. It flows to the west where it joins the Clark Fork. It's one of Montana's most iconic rivers. 

The Blackfoot River is renowned for its recreational opportunities, most notably fly fishing, but also rafting, canoeing, and inner tubing. The Blackfoot is a fast, cold river with many deep spots, making it prime habitat for several varieties of trout.

The river's canyon and the valleys were formed by the Missoula Floods, cataclysmic glacial lake outburst floods which occurred at the end of the last ice age.
