Beautiful splashy class II-III roadside bluewater run on the Rocky Mountain Front. There are no distinct rapids, just non-stop splashy rapids with a few moves here and there. Choose your own adventure, and enjoy the scenery.
One word of caution about gages on the Rocky Mountain Front. In most cases, the rivers flowing off the Front decrease in volume as they flow out into the plains. This is because they are heavily diverted for agriculture. Rely on gages with a significant measure of caution since diversions severely alter flows, typically immediately upon the rivers leaving the mountains or even sooner.
Put in at the first cattle guard below Clary Coulee Trail head and got out at the South Fork Bridge. A nice class I boogie water run--Don't know where the class II-III run is?

American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
American Whitewater recently sent a letter to Senator Max Baucus formally supporting the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. The Act seeks to offer additional protections for Montana's iconic and dramatic Rocky Mountain Front by way of 70,000 acres of Wilderness designations and the creation of a new 200,000 acre National Conservation Area.
In the final days of the 113th Congress, several river conservation measures have been passed designating significant new Wilderness Areas and Wild and Scenic Rivers in areas vitally important to the paddling community.
Wild rivers and their enthusiasts got some good news with the release of the new 15-20 year Forest plan for the Flathead National Forest. The decision newly protects 22 streams as eligible for Wild and Scenic designation, based in large part on the advocacy of American Whitewater and our awesome partners and members in Montana. These protections will serve as a vital steppingstone to the designation of some of our Nation’s most outstanding headwater streams.
