2009 West Rosebud Creek Flow Program Announced

Exciting news for western Montana paddlers. Click the link above and read American Whitewater's summary of the new West Rosebud Creek flow program for 2009. It's pretty complicated, so give it a close read and help spread the word!

Thanks to Andy for the heads up and to Kevin at AW for the summary.

High Water Lochsa, 2009 - 9 ft. (IV)

We caught the Lochsa at 9 ft. on May 31, 2009. The Lochsa at high water is an incredibly fun time, albeit a bit rowdy and a little out of control. The surfing is awesome at high water with big, catch on the fly waves that just keep coming. For logistical information, see the original Lochsa post at the bottom of the page.

Main Flathead River, Montana, I-II (Buffalo Bridge to Sloan Bridge)

I am going to make an increased effort to start posting on stretches that have mellower water and are more "family friendly" in addition to the more difficult runs. The Main Flathead from Buffalo Bridge to Sloan Bridge is my favorite overnight canoe stretch in the state of Montana. Click the river name above for a detailed description of the run.
