Bighorn Canyon, Montana
A high and dry float line demarking a swimming area on the reservoir at Bighorn Canyon. While the water level is low, with water drawdowns for irrigation etc., it’s actually not bad for the end of another dry year. In fact, we’ve seen it worse in just the last year or two when even in the middle of the season there was so little water in the reservoir the dam pool did not even reach this far upstream. Montana’s own little version of what’s happening at Lake Power and Lake Mead on the Colorado.
