 CHRS - The Clearwater River - Fact Sheet
The Clearwater brings to the System geological formations representing two major periods in the earth’s geological development; rare and endangered species of birds and animals; evidence, in the form of “pictographs” of the region’s pre-European Indian occupation; and, the historic Methye Portage, over which passed many of Canada’s early explorers and fur traders.

But for most of those exploring Clearwater River backcountry, float-plane charters to fishing and hunting camps on lakes on or near the river are the preferred means of beginning or ending trips.
