I've lived in Whitefish for 12 years. Great town and people. There is class IV-V boating available, but mostly in more remote areas. Check the Kootenai (U.S; not Canada), upper Middle Fork Flathead (fly or hike in access only) the upper South Fork Flathead (through Meadow Creek Gorge, hike/horsepack access only) and the Yaak River through the canyon. In Canada, check out the lower Elk (VI-/III+) the Kicking Horse and the Bull. All have solid whitewater at various times throughout the year.Hey Mountain Buzzers,
I am looking to move to Whitefish MT and can only find class 2-3 boating in the area on AW and in guidebooks. What are the options for class IV-V boating in the area?
