Blackfoot River Information:
The Blackfoot River is a snow-fed and spring-fed river in western Montana, just outside Missoula. The Blackfoot is a fast, cold river with many deep spots, making it prime habitat for several varieties of trout. It is one of the most famous stretches of water in the world and was featured in the 1992 film a River Runs Through It by Robert Redford. We fish the upper stretch that is rarely fished. The lower stretch is frequented by rafters and Missoula outdoor recreation enthusiasts and we recommend getting to know this river by guide if you want to relax and raft or fish it’s beautiful spots on a boat away from people and the service road which allows us all to access it.
When to go: Because the Blackfoot is smaller by volume than the majestic Clark Fork, we end up rafting and fishing the Blackfoot River in May and June. We take groups of four our more rafting when the Clark Fork water level is too high.
