The Middle Fork of Monture Creek is a small 2nd order tributary stream that drains three small cirque lakes each averaging about 6-acres in size. The Monture Lakes lie at elevations between 7,217 and 7,702’, and they drain the southern slopes of Moser Mountain and is also fed by a small un-named tributary stream draining the western slopes of Foolhen Mountain, the Middle Fork drains a ~ 7 mile² basin just south of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. This area is located on Lolo National Forest and is managed for wilderness values. This Middle Fork is 3.6-miles in length and generates an estimated base-flow of 4-6cfs. Gradient is relatively steep near the headwaters descending ~ 788’ the first 0.6-miles decreasing to an average of 377’/ mile between miles one and three and decreasing to 169’/mile in the lower mile. The Middle Fork enters Monture Creek at stream-mile 25.9, which is ~ 0.2 miles upstream of Monture Creek Falls. Much of the riparian under-story vegetation at the survey section (mile 0.8) on Middle Fork Monture Creek is dense alder mixed with willow and rocky mountain maple, ferns and various grasses beneath a canopy of Douglas fir, Englemann spruce, lodgepole pine and black cottonwood stands. The channel supports pool and riffle sequences with a predominately cobble and boulder substrate, overhanging vegetation and under-cut banks. Large woody debris recruitment to the stream channel at the survey location is light.
