River Description


This is great little creek with some some powerful bedrock drops, boulder gardens and one ski-jump style slide (Lower Boulder Falls). It's a great per-warmer for the step-up run - Bear Creek (Victor, MT). The slides and falls section at the end are the crux and must be scouted carefully as there are few eddies and wood moves around year to year. It's a small creek and really at all levels you should scout everything.

The top half is mostly short slides with some boulder drops with one long low angle slide.

The take out is at the pool at the bottom of Lower Boulder Cr. Falls or continue another hundred yards or so through a steep boulder garden.

This is a spectactular cascade that can throw you airtime at higher flows. The top section (Island Falls) rumbles down a rowdy slide and is quickly followed by the main drop which blasts upward off a bedrock ledge or at lower flows, screams left over a 5ft drop into a pool.

Appeal Challenging Montana Navigability Is Denied

7/28/2003
Jason Robertson

On May 28 the U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal by Mountain States Legal Foundation who filed a lawsuit in June 2001 alleging the 1985 Montana Stream Access Law violated their rights under the U.S. Constitution to regulate who floated over their land.

The decision thereby protects Montana's Stream access law and public rights of navigation throughout the State.
