The Clark Fork starts out small, but exits the state as Montana's largest river. It meanders through pastures and woodlands with Interstate 90 paralleling much of its route. The river is mostly Class I water except for a difficult whitewater section through the Alberton Gorge that has Class III and IV rapids. Other than the gorge, practiced beginners can handle much of the Clark Fork. Excellent waterfowl hunting between old Harper Bridge and Huson. Good fall fishing below Forest Grove.
