Clark Fork River in Montana

Trip Overview

Class IV- Paddling conditions Moderate

From Triple Bridges to Boat Take out Approx.6 mi

Time on water 45 min

River is near flood stage, high, brown, some partially submerged tree trunks, but no serious obstacles or dangers in rapids.

Strange hydrolics, most of the named rapids are submerged and large waves and sucking holes are in their place

Boat eater, and Boat flipper were not in play yet as water still seemed too high

Tumbleweed is a massive wave, but no drops since the rock is still underwater, same for fang

Will update on next run hopefully -10k flows for more whitewater play will do 11 mile stretch and update on full rapid conditions
