River Description

Cow Creek offers paddlers a relatively short and easily accessible descent over Class IV and V bedrock drops and slides.  Since Lower Smith Creek has been lost to a hydropower diversion Upper Smith has become very recreationally important. Cow Creek is often paddled in association with Boundary and Smith creeks.

John Gangemi

<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Idaho is proposing a $13 registration fee for non-motorized boats greater than 7 feet in length.  Under this registration fee proposal all kayaks and rafts on Idaho waters would be required to have a registration sticker fixed to the bow of each boat greater than 7 feet in length.  Stickers would not be transferable between boats.  Out of state boaters would be required to comply as well.
