Any reviews on the Smith River? im putting in for a permit this year and would like some ideas as to what the best date range to apply for.

Its not a whitewater river, go once the water drops and clears.

It's hard to pick a time for angling the Smith as it's a short window between high water and too low to float/too warm water temps for C&R. I'd try for the last week in June and hope for the best. While it's not a whitewater trip, it is beautiful and worth your time even if it's too high.

Floated it 2 years ago and it was blown out. Beautiful area, fun trip. If the fishing sucks you can paddle through and take off a day/two early. There are plenty of other options and rivers close by
