Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks notes:

Noted for its spectacular scenery and renowned trout fishing, the Smith River is unique with only one public put-in and take-out site for the entire 59-miles. Smith River State Park offers gorgeous scenery in a remote setting. The river is accessible only by non-motorized watercraft, including; rafts, canoes, kayaks and drift boats. The Smith River is so popular that a permit is required to float it. Up to 15 people can float with one permit. Permit applications are available the first week of January each year with a lottery drawing conducted in late February. From May 15 – July 15  floaters can stay on the river a maximum of four nights only.

You have until February 15, 2013 to apply for a 2013 Smith River permit. Apply Here.
