Making Trout Creek Great Again

If you paddle in Missoula than this is the crown jewel of creeks. Located an hour out of town, Trout Creek is the best continuous class V creeking you will find in Western Montana. For years this place was a staple of the Missoula creek scene, but after some shifty wood and summer wildfires Trout was left neglected. However, thanks to motivated efforts to clear log jams and a monumental 2017 winter Trout has again risen to greatness. A total of five groups journeyed into abyss in '17 but I can assure you that she has found her groove again. So put this classic on your radar for 2018 and it will surely provide.
