The Canyon is the section of the river from the Conant Valley access to the Byington access and presents a contour comprised of volcanic cliffs and a cottonwood forest river bottom which is home for the largest bald eagle winter roost in the Northern Rockies.
Foot access is more difficult in this section, but it is not uncommon for floaters deep in the canyon to find a few side channels where wade fishing and angling from the bank is possible.
Wading safely and knowing the float area are critical in this section because it is not without swift currents, deep pools, irrigation diversion dams and large eddies.
