is the section of river below the hungry horse damn paddle- able? how is the paddling in general in that area? it seemed pretty limited when i lived out there as far as steep creeks go. i learned to paddle from brian, a lift-op at TBM, and all 'round great guy. is there good (steep) water around fernie? also, i understand that it's illegal to boat in glacier park. pretty corner of the country you got there.

Falcon books have a guide called "Paddling Montana".

wrapper | Falcon Guides

It is all kinds of paddling, not just surfing or creeking.

You'd probably want to check out the south and middle fork of the Flathead. North fork is beautiful, and mellower.

You definatley want Montana Surf, not Paddling Montana. There out of print, and I ainīt givin mine up. The word on the street is that Turner is planning on publishing a second edition, a few runīs they left out, and a few corrections to the old ones. According to an advertisment in the new Southern Rockies Guide book it should have been out last spring. Its hard to tell, havenīt heard any buzz about it actually hittin the shelfs. If your in the Bozeman area, you could have a look at mine, make photo copies, take notes, or somethinī.

Yep, Montana Surf by Nick Turner and Matt Willson. Thatīs the first edition. Canīt buy it anywhere, that web sight has an outdated link to there store. Itīs a good book, theyīre a little off on a few runs, but has definatley proved to be a valueble resource.

Looks like you need to take a road trip to Bozeman, ski Bridger and make a copy. If you do that, let me know, I'd love to get one!

Paddling Montana is worthless unless you are canoeing, track down Montana Surf
