Fishing the Eastern Front of the Rockies

This is the source of the Sun River, just below Gibson Dam in the Sun Canyon on the Eastern Front of the Rocky Mountains here in Montana.  The Bob Marshall Wilderness Area is behind this scene, and to the northwest is Glacier National Park.  The Sun River is pretty good trout fishing below the dam for a ways, and usually not too busy.  I didn't do so good the day I was out here, but it was still one of the best days I had during the year.  The scenery was spectacular and I shot some good photos.  

This very rugged country, and the nearest town is Augusta, south east of here.  From Augusta take the Sun Canyon Road.  Veer left at Willow Creek Road to stay on Sun Canyon.  You will drive past the huge Sun Canyon Ranch on the way.  

Watch out for Grizzly Bears.
