Fun on Glacier Country Waterways

Note: As of July 1, 2023, Conservation Licenses are required for everyone age 12 and older to access most state lands, including wildlife management areas, fishing access sites and wildlife habitat protection areas. This requirement does not include state parks. Please recreate responsibly. Learn more here.

With calm paths, deep runs, gentle riffles and a healthy dose of raging rapids, Glacier Country has the full spectrum of river conditions. And while Montana's rivers are vastly different, they each share a few fine features: cool and clear water, pretty views and easy access. For a complete list of waters and access sites, visit Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
