Smith River Professional Review and Guide

"The Smith River runs 121 miles from the town of White Sulphur Springs to the confluence with the Missouri near the town of Ulm. By far the most popular section of the Smith is the 59 mile canyon section that begins at Camp Baker and terminates at Eden Bridge. This magical float twists and turns off the beaten path with limestone cliffs rising 500 feet above the water. Access is limited to 9 parties per day for those fortunate to draw permits in a lottery-type drawing that takes place annually in February.

Types of Fish: Brown, Rainbow, and Brook Trout, Whitefish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
