You used to be able to hire a shuttle at Norris Hot Springs in Norris. That was when Dorris the B----- owned it. Don't know now. You would be very lucky to find kayakers at the takeout to run shuttle with. The shuttle is a bit long, too. Recommend the Hot springs when you're done.
Quake is just up the road and the shuttle is easy to run/hitch.
The Gallatin is runnable pretty much year round, but I can't hardly be talked into driving from Bozeman for it. Same with the Yellowstone (Gardiner stretch and Yankee Jim).
If I was to drive somewhere this way to boat it would be Kootenai area or Idaho (Payettes).
