This is a great mystery that I'm having fun trying to figure out. The problem is that its a small stream, and there are so many in that part of the world that its hard to pin down. At first, like others, I thought Montana--probably eastern, like Missouri country, a tributary of that or the Milk (the Milk river valley is beautiful--well, to some people). But the Idaho/Montana border clue is interesting. Not a lot like that in eastern Idaho, but maybe in the far SW corner of Montana--perhaps somewhere on the Beaverhead? Doesn't really look like it but close.

I don't think you'll ever get an answer unless you comment in the video post and ask. But, as was said, you have more than a full slate without searching for this little gem.

OK a few things to help you guys out. The river is a tail water. Notice how clear the water is in arid environment. Having grown up in an arid environment rivers do not run that clear unless the are tailwaters. Second. The rocks are sedimentary. Those two things rule out most of the waters in eastern Idaho.

In all seriousness to the poster. Take a few days and explore the South side of the Units mountains after fishing the Green. You may even find your own Magic river.

One of the issues here is fly fishing is a lot like Fight Club. The first rule of Fly Fishing is if you find a magic river you don't speak of the magic river's name.

"I know she's on the Idaho/Montana border."

I can't think of any river along the Idaho/Montana border that resembles that unless some place along the Beaverhead below Clark Cyn Rez (?), but even then I can't put the approach and landscape in mind for that suggestion.

Even though you've allocated a month for your trip you might have "over-booked" yourself, but don't let any of us discourage you from attempting to complete your plans. Each place you've mentioned is well worth the energy.

Bonne chance, mon ami. Fais un temps splendide!

If it is on the Idaho Montana border. It would have to be SW Montana. South of Dillon? Maybe the beaver head? I was thinking it kinda looked like the Clark's fork around Bridger. But that is the Montana Wyoming border......
