A famous river: The Blackfoot River is a snow and spring-fed river in Western Montana just outside Missoula. The Blackfoot River 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.
Fishing: We fish the upper stretch that is rarely fished. The lower stretch is frequented by tubers and Missoula outdoor recreation enthusiasts during July and August 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. Wade fishing the Blackfoot does not do it justice. Depending on conditions and water flows, we have three different stretches to fish on the Blackfoot River. It can be done by either drift boat or raft. Each stretch offers a diversity of terrain and water that your guide will ensure is a successful and wonderful experience Mid March through November.
Rafting: Because the Blackfoot is smaller by volume than the majestic Clark Fork, we end up rafting the Blackfoot River in May and June. We take groups of four our more rafting for a full or half day when the Clark Fork water level is too high. A locally sourced, homemade lunch featuring fresh garden grown produce is provided on the full day trips. Trips include all gear, swimming as weather permits, lunch break for the full days, and general wildlife viewing. This is a great trip for a family adventure during May and June. It features Class I and II rapids and scenic views.
Traveling to Missoula? You are in a world class fishery. If you enjoy rivers, moving water, and are interested in fishing at all…. you should consider fishing two days.
