Be advised that Montana can get hot, really hot in July. Some of our trip was over 110 degrees. There will be some bugs, but June is much worse. Bring the Lewis and Clark Journal. Use a water pump or other water treatment. Don't over load your boat ie Old Town fictional weight ratings of 1000 pound loads as being okay. Take your time and have fun.
Sometimes shade is in short supply. I agree with the need for clothing, brimmed hats, free-standing tarp, sunscreen, etc.
