Prospect Creek is an excellent bluewater creek run with a distinct upper gorge and lower gorge
and a couple surprizes in the middle. A Montana rarity, Prospect has easy road access and a USGS
gage on it. Bike shuttle is an option. The rapids in the upper gorge are powerful and
stacked but well defined by large boulders, and are Class V at higher water. The lower
gorge (just upstream of the Clark Fork) is a great bedrock flume rapid.
Keep your eyes peeled for wood on this run - and also for a bull trout monitoring sensor that is
strung across the river on a piece of climbing rope. This wire sensor also runs along the
river bottom. Use caution.
