Smith River Bend is a spectacular property tucked into the Smith River Valley along one of the most scenic stretches of the Smith River. The 21± acres sits on a bluff overlooking the water with tremendous views and two river access sites if you walk just a few minutes up and downstream. Smith River Bend is a rare opportunity to own a piece of one of the most famed rivers in the west. The Smith River, famous for its floating and angling, is protected by a lottery system that the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks regulate to prevent overuse. This lottery system creates exclusivity, making privately owned land on the water hard to come by. As a landowner, you can bypass the lottery system and float the river any day of the year. After the primary float season ends in early July, you are often the only person on the river and can meander through majestic canyons as far as you wish. This property is truly a unique opportunity that does not come available often.
