A true prairie river, the Tongue winds through narrow canyons and cottonwood bottoms, the only moist spot in a parched landscape. The river is Class I for its entire length and suitable for beginners. A good early season float (April and May) in an area that tends to be hotter and drier than most of Montana. If you hit is just right, the river may even be clear. The Tongue River may be Montana’s most overlooked float stream. It provides easy paddling, excellent fishing, fine scenery, and almost unexcelled solitude. This prairie stream flows from Wyoming into Montana and provides a unique perspective for observing eastern Montana’s quiet beauty. The Tongue offers more than 100 miles of quality floating before joining the Yellowstone River.
