Comments on the river below. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND MY BOAT, REWARD FOR SAFE RETURN! We lost a maroon and gray "Wilderness II" single man pontoon boat. It was lost stuck in a log jam on river left about one mile by river from the River Junction put in. please email me at Bradley.Cederberg@gmail.com.
We learned the hard way that this section of river is running a little higher than normal. We were set up for a lazy river float (what it would normally be this time of year). Turns out this river is at least a month behind normal river flow. Per above post, we were wrong. Everyone got out just fine but we lost a boat. River Junction to Scotty Brown bridge is just shy of three hours. Beautiful float. Float this section if you are looking for less traffic and a terrific camp spot at put out. The end of the road to RJ is a little rough be manageable without 4x4.

On March 18, 2010 the Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP) released their new management plan for the Blackfoot River. After conducting their analysis and considering public input, FWP decided not to institute a limited permit system on the Blackfoot.
