I did this trip in June 2005. We used Adventure Bound out of Fort Benton for our shuttle, and I would recommend them.

You have to pack out all trash and your human waste. Although there were 2 or 3 campgrounds with pit toilets along the way. You can carry a portable toilet system, but we took the "wag bags". The outfitter sells them.

The river is way too silty to filter, plus there's the ag run off and the 5000 cows you'll see standing in the river. We carried three Reliance hard sided water jugs. I think each is 6 gallons and they fit nicely under the canoe seats.

We also took along a small cooler with some fresh foods. No concerns about bears on this stretch. I think we stashed the cooler under the canoe every night, and we never had any trouble.
