The Red Rock River arises from Lower Red Rock Lake in the Centennial Valley of southwestern Montana. The river flows westward for approximately 17 miles before entering Lima Reservoir. Built in 1902, the irrigation storage reservoir markedly alters the natural flow regime of the river.

From the impoundment, the Red Rock flows approximately 34 miles in a northwesterly direction before discharging into Clark Canyon Reservoir. The river stretches 91 miles from beginning to end and averages 45 feet in width.

Historically, it held populations of cutthroat trout, arctic grayling, and mountain whitefish. Today cutthroat trout are found only in the river upstream from Lima Reservoir and grayling may be gone from the river.
