Overview

Darlington Creek is a spring-fed creek that flows at the base of a dike that was created to protect the Madison River Valley bottom near Three Forks from flooding. The creek flows along at the base of the dike, conveying irrigation water from the Madison to downstream users along with the abundant spring water that bubbles up in the creekbed along the way. When Beartooth Capital purchased the ranch in the fall of 2010, the creek was thirty feet wide and inches deep in much of its two miles on the property. That December Beartooth Capital began work creating a new meandering channel with cut banks, deep holes, spawning riffles and runs within that old channel. The creek is completely transformed, from a ditch with little if any value for trout to a spring creek that is jaw-dropping in its beauty and in the sheer volume of holding water. The fishery has responded as well, with large fish moving in from above and below during the spawning season to take advantage of the ample food, holding water and spawning habitat on the new reaches. With just our second fall spawn coming up soon, they can't wait to see how this fishery improves year by year. With all of the resources available now in the restored creek, the fishery's potential is essentially limitless.
