Drifting Down the Madison River: The Kitchen Sink is Full of Rapids, Not Fish

Filmed on May 29, 2010, this video documents two men in a drift boat floating down the infamous Kitchen Sink rapid stretch on Montana’s Madison River.

While the Madison River is known for world-class fly fishing, it’s also a destination for rafting, but these guys decided to take a drift boat down its most intense rapid.

Watch as they navigate the treacherous Kitchen Sink rapid, finding lots of whitewater and not so make fish.

At the front of the boat was Ryan Early and Brook McConnell was working the oars, and as you just saw they survived the Kitchen Sink.

Did you see the boat get turned sideways for a second there? Luckily, these boaters were able to correct it before the next wave hit them, otherwise they may have capsized.

According to the YouTube User the Madison River was running at 1900 cfs that and the Kitchen Sink was roaring with spring runoff. Do you think you could handle the Kitchen Sink during the spring as well as these guys?
