Russ aka “the Golden Eagle” regularly swoops in to save the day at MRG. He’s been running rivers since he was a kid growing up in Oregon. Russ has a comprehensive understanding of river running and tons of experience.  He’s been working with us for over a decade and is a joy to be around.

We had a great time rafting the Alberton gorge with the Montana River Guides. Our guide Russ was excellent, fun, educational and entertaining. I highly recommend using Montana River Guides!
Our guide was extremely safety conscious and professional. Russ was great conversing with the kids on the trip and encouraged them to take turns riding in front of the raft through rapids. We stopped below Fang rapid so that everyone could take turns jumping from a cliff into…
Russ, our guide, was delightful, knowledgeable about what we saw. He and my husband shared many interests. Russ was very cognizant of my apprehension of water, did a masterful job getting through the “minor” ripples to make me feel comfortable. Good luck Russ in pursuing your pilots license.

We have taken many rafting trips over the years and hands down this was one of the best ones yet!!! We took a private full day rafting tour with river side picnic and couldn’t have had a better time!! Our guide set up the best lunch spread at the waterside including fresh fruit and veggie trays, salad, sandwiches, chips/salsa, and the best homemade cookies!!! We had many stops, chances to swim, small cliff jumping, and the most beautiful scenery!!! Shout out to Amy as being the most fun guide to our crazy “Billy Goat Cyrus” group from Texas!!! Request her and you won’t be disappointed!!!
Our Montana River Guide trip down the Clark Fork was the highlight to our Montana vacation. Our guide let us paddle some while we were going thru the rapids which was an awesome experience. Weather and sun on the morning trip made for some great pictures.
We did a scenic float with our young kids. This was the absolute best thing we did our whole trip! So beautiful, so much fun. Amy was our guide and she was incredibly fun, knowledgable and kind. Cannot wait to float with them again!
There were three of us over 60 year old gals on our trip. Our guide, Jack, was outstanding. We felt safe and secure under his care the whole time while having the time of our lives. The beautiful scenery and wildlife were a bonus to the incredible river with its rapids along with calm areas to relax & enjoy the ride. Top on my list of the other incredible things we did this summer.
One of the best experience in the US was spending our Sunday with Montana River Guides! The crew was able to accommodate to over 60 of us on the YSEALI alumni tour and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river - Whitewater Rafting or Scenic Tour. Guides are 100% professionals who have fun with safety in mind. Highly recommend and must visit when you're in Montana. Thanks for the memories!
