I recently moved from Grand Junction to Helena, Montana. I know mountainbuzz is about as good as it gets, but is there a site similar to the buzz for Montana and Idaho kayakers? Thanks in advance.
I've got a few boater buds in Helena. Let me know if you want to get in touch. There are not alot of boaters in your area, so most folks are very responsive to getting new boating pards. That's the good news.
Moved to Great Falls in November and haven't really connected with the boating community in the area yet....but then again I've been skiing way too much. Now that season is pretty much over I need to get serious about finding other paddlers in the "area". Drop me a line....
I'm told that most of the snow has melted in the valley bottoms, although you dont have to go too high to find snow. The river is running about 6500, so its close to the 7000-11,000 optimal flow---you should have plenty of water.
The river is closed from Libby Dam to the Hwy. 37 bridge from April 1 to June 1 to protect spawning rainbow trout.
