Judith River

Judith River Professional Review and Guide

"This excellent canoeing stream flows through isolated breaks country that features white cliffs, deep coulees, and peculiar rock formations. The river is mostly Class I, except for a 1-mile Class II rapid beginning a mile upstream from the Montana Highway 81 bridge. Suitable for intermediates in canoes or practiced beginners in rafts.

In a normal year, floating on the Judith is possible until mid-July (it can pick up with fall rains). If you see lots of rocks above the surface and the water looks low just above the Highway 81 bridge, you should definitely not try the float between Danvers Bridge and the Highway 81 bridge."
