This aptly named river flows through pine forests and mountain meadows with the famous Bob Marshall Wilderness to the east and the towering Mission Mountains to the west. Its mostly a Class I river suitable for practiced beginners. A 2-mile section of Class II and III whitewater starts in a canyon just after Salmon Lake. Watch migrating songbirds along the Clearwater Canoe Trail in the spring.

The lakes are ice free now. Water is high enough to cross thru the rock garden below Salmon Lake.
