In the News:

The Big Hole River Foundation was founded in 1988 by noted Montana conservationist, angler, and fly tier George F. Grant. The Big Hole River Foundation is a nonprofit science-based conservation organization dedicated to defending and conserving the natural and cultural resources of the Big Hole.  Known for its blue-ribbon trout fishery, the Big Hole flows undammed for 150 miles. The river is home to the last native, self-sustaining wild population of fluvial Arctic grayling in the lower forty-eight states.  Our projects and programs are supported by diverse interests. We work closely with local, state, and federal agencies, sportsmen organizations and conservationists. We fund our projects through our events, membership dues, donations, government grants, and individual foundation grants. 

Kid's Day Learn to Fish

Issues include reduced stream flow, loss of habitat to development, grazing management, noxious weeds, trophy trout management, and the decline of the fluvial Arctic grayling.  There is much to do and with YOUR help we can be assured of protecting this rare and beautiful resource.  Your membership and generous donations help us deliver our programs and initiatives.  Please Join Us!
