New Section of Clark Fork Opens

Ready to put in at Turah (Photo courtesy FW&P)

A whole new section of the Clark Fork River is now open water recreation. Fish, Wildlife and Parks says the float from the Turah Fishing Access to the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot is now open.  It’s been over a century since the section of the river has been open.  Turah FAS is located eight miles east of Missoula on I-90 to Exit 113 (Turah), south then east for 2 miles.

The water is pretty cold right now so if you plan on floating take that into account. Also with spring runoff  there’s extra logs and junk in the water watch out for that. It would be a good idea to stay away from bridges across the river right now as well. There can be some nasty undertows and currents around the pilings.

Remember to respect property along the river and once you get down to the confluence area watch out for some sensitive areas. The reclamation and revegitation of the riverbanks will take a while.

Thanks to Vivica Crowser  of Region 2 of Fish Wildlife and Parks for the pictures.
