One of Montana's premier floating streams, the Smith River cuts a narrow swath through a spectacular canyon. Its colorful cliffs, abundant wildflowers, outstanding wildlife, and excellent fishing bring people back year after year. The river at normal flows is Class I, except for two Class II rapids. Suitable for practiced beginners in rafts, intermediates in canoes. Requires continuous maneuvering. After river drops below floatable levels, summer rainstorms sometimes raise flows enough for spur-of-the-moment canoeists. Float fee and permit required.
