Smith River Super Permit Lottery Closes

Apr 1, 2021 12:00 AM

Apr 1, 2021 12:01 AM

The opportunity to purchase chances of the Smith River Super Permit Lottery closes on April 1st. 


In addition to the permit lottery, the public may purchase as many $5 Super Permit chances as they choose. Montana State Parks issues one Super Permit each year through a separate lottery. The recipient of the Super Permit will be allowed to launch on any date of their choosing for that float season.

The opportunity to purchase chances for the Smith River "Super Permit" will be available from January 4th through April 1st, 2021.

The Super Permit drawing will be announced on April 2nd, 2021.

Chances may be purchased online through the Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) Automated Licensing System. This is a good option for another chance for a float, if you aren't awarded a permit in the regular drawing.
