The lower Clark Fork’s Alberton Gorge combines Western Montana’s most scenic and geologically intriguing river canyon, Class III big volume pool drop whitewater, and Class V fishing. We offer this trip during low flow season (usually from around early August through mid October). Located only 35 minutes from Missoula, this makes an unparalleled day trip or an even better overnighter. Several of our long time clientele argue the Gorge is simply the best trip available anywhere in the Western United States! We happen to agree. Be prepared to get wet and bent on this unbelievable angling adventure.
This full day trip includes guide, terminal tackle, shuttle and a riverside lunch. Overnight and multiday trips through the Gorge also include all camp gear together with delicious breakfasts and dinners. We will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel or B&B as well.
What’s included: Fishing/Whitewater trips include everything – your guide, travel to and from river, rod/reel, terminal tackle and flies!
What’s not included: Montana fishing license, waders (we can arrange rentals), transportation to and from Missoula, and gratuities.
*Reservation/cancellation Policy –
A 50% deposit is required to secure a reservation within 7 days of booking. The balance is due 30 days prior to the start of the trip. Deposits are fully refundable (less a $150 processing fee) if the cancellation is received prior to 90 days of the arrival date. Cancellations within 90-30 days of arrival, the deposit is non-refundable. Cancellations made within 30 days of arrival receive no refunds. Requests to move a scheduled trip date are the same as canceling and re-booking. Out of necessity to secure guides, permits and lodging well in advance, we make no exceptions to our cancelation policy. Montana weather is often variable, trips are not cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. We strongly recommend you to purchase trip insurance. We partner with Global Rescue to offer this. Global Rescue’s Signature Travel and Signature Plus (Cancel for any Reason) Insurance allows you insure all of your expenses and covers all activities. While a Signature Travel Insurance policy can be purchased at any time, purchasing a policy within 20 days of making your initial trips deposit gives you the widest range of policy options specifically to cancel for any reason.
Cancellations received 90 days prior to original trip date can have payments credited to any future trip within one year of the original trip date. This trip must be conducted within one year of original scheduled trip.
We do not cancel a guided fishing trip due to weather. We fish rain or shine!
Cancellations on our end would be due to unsafe conditions. In this unlikely situation, we offer a full refund.
