The Musselshell has a different drainage area. If you travel upstream from the confluence at the UL bend you would go south to Melstone and then turn and head west. The headwaters of the river are in the Snowy Mtn and the north side of the Crazy's. To the south of this drainage is the Yellowstone River, to the North is the Judith, Smith, and various creeks feeding the Missouri. In a dry summer, the river almost dries up, which is a problem for the towns along the way that use it for drinking water.
