...Rising River Levels Through Saturday...

Warm temperatures the past few days in the higher terrain will
continue to lead to area rivers and streams seeing an increase in
flows. Rivers are expected to reach their highest levels by
Saturday. Cooler temperatures over the weekend will slow
snowmelt, and rivers are forecast to be receding by late Sunday
into Monday.

Primary rivers are not anticipated to reach flood stage, given
their current and forecasted high flows:

Bitterroot River
Clark Fork River

Those living near these rivers will want to keep a close eye on
flows throughout the next several days.
