Small towns in focus: Loma
Three rivers and a highway
August 22, 2014
Loma sits wrapped around U.S. Highway 87 north of Fort Benton and south of Havre. The town has a population of 85, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
The town grew up at a mecca where three rivers meet: the Teton River, which runs into the Marias River, which runs into the Missouri.
This meeting of rivers makes for some great fishing. Catfish, bass, northern pike, walleye and sauger are some of the species that travel the rivers throughout the year, and in some weeks, anglers can catch up to seven species in a day, according to Greg Bouchard.
