River Description

The road runs along the river and although it is not as popular as a whitewater float there is plenty of recreational activity along the river. Those looking for a fun day float and willing to dodge the jet boats can start their trip from here; despite the jet boat traffic, everyone has space to play. When the river is at the right level, kayakers will find a couple of decent park-and-play spots.

From Heller Bar downstream to Lewiston (on the Idaho side) and Clarkston (on the Washington side) the road follows the river along river left. There are several places to access the river that are popular with locals throughout the summer.

<?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.
