It's actually just different sections of the same creek! Elevation where these pics were taken is around 6500 ft. It's about an hour's drive from Montana and a half hour's drive from Wyoming.
The willows on the bank do make it tricky, so your backcast has to be perfectly parallel to the bank and cast directly upstream. The pic with the bridge gives a better idea how wide the majority of the creek is.
Feels pretty good to catch some cutthroat in such a tricky place!
