The closest online gauge is just above the confluence with Shoshone Creek (near Pritchard). Unfortunately, the gauge is below the confluence with Teepee Creek, which is nearly equal in volume to the North Fork. For the best indication of level on the North Fork check under the take out bridge. There is no stick gauge here, but look for it to be running bank full. From the hydrograph, peak run off is early May.
Permits are not required for this reach.

<?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.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
