Hiked in, while muled packed in rafts, provisions, camping gear, etc. About 4 miles down to the upper river. Floated approximate 25 miles over 4 days, catching countless cutthroat (I pulled a hat trick -- only one of 6 anglers to do so -- by bring cutts, whitefish and bulltrout to the net). Each angler had no less than 20 fish per day, some as many as 40 or 50. Average size was 12 to 14 inches, biggest fish was 20 inches. Contact Glacier Anglers (Glacier Outdoor Center) if you want details on the trip. Hilary Hutcheson of Trout TV loaded up all her fishing gear for the hike in so she could hit the water as soon as we arrived at the river instead of having to wait for the mules to arrive. One of the many cutthroats we caught, and gently released. Snaking eating frog! A few class III and IV rapids along the way.
