The Bitterroot Valley lies in a north/south protected valley with its own distinctive climate apart from the rest of the state. Microclimates are found throughout the valley because of the variety of elevations and bodies of water. Spring varies with its entrance; residents can get a taste of early warm weather, although temperatures fluctuate greatly between March and May. June brings most of the precipitation which is much needed as the valley heads into the heat of July and August. Warm summer days often stretch well into September. Fall brings a beautiful display of colors as the temperatures drop and the days get shorter. Snow comes early in the mountains here; the west side usually will have somewhat more snow than the east side and traditionally the East Fork and West Fork areas, south of Darby, will receive a larger snow depth due to the higher elevations.
The Bitterroot Valley has a dry climate and a low humidity factor with an average rainfall of 13.3 inches per year. The west side of the valley generally has more pine trees and shallower soil and enjoys a view of the Sapphire Mountains to the east. The east side of the valley is slightly warmer with deeper soil and an impressive view of the Bitterroot Mountain range.
The valley floor generally has the most productive soil and enjoys a view of both mountain ranges. Growing season 130-150 days, Average Frost Free Period May 14-Sept. 20, Zone 5-6.
Cold, clear mountain streams, quiet lakes and secret ‘cricks’ offer solitude, spectacular scenery and World Class Trout Fishing. With its gentle currents and easy wading, the Bitterroot River is the ideal trout stream, offering the angler unsurpassed fishing. Native to this river are species such as Brook Trout, Brown, Bull, Cutthroat, cutthroat/rainbow cross and Rainbow Trout as well as Mountain Whitefish. State fishing access sites along the Bitterroot River are spaced at five to ten mile intervals, allowing wading anglers key entry points and providing floaters with options for full or half-day trips.
The high alpine lakes of the Bitterroot Mountains also offer superb fishing. Some require a bit of a hike to get to, others are easily reached by car, but all are well worth the effort. The largest of these lakes and most popular is Lake Como.
Local recreation area for water sports is Lake Como. Bring your boat or personal watercraft and enjoy a full day on the water angling for both cutthroat and rainbow trout.
Other smaller streams such as Skalkaho Creek and Bear Creek offer Native cutthroat, Brown trout and Mountain Whitefish. Most streams in the valley pass through some private land; Montana law allows the public to make recreational use of rivers and streams between the ordinary high water marks. Anglers can wade a stream, walk along the bank below the high water mark or float fish on any waters large enough to carry a boat.
Missoula International Airport offers non-stop commercial service to major cities throughout the U.S. Ravalli County Airport and the Stevensville Airport are open to private planes. Rental cars are available in Missoula and Hamilton.
