Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.
Have done this run at 4700. Very nice run. Starts as flat water, then picks up and soon becomes continuous wave train. Isolated and water moves fast. The stand-out rapid is Devil's Hole; look for a creek on the left exiting a rocky amphitheater followed by tree covered bar on left. Easy scout on left.
DANGER: RIVER-WIDE LOG JAM 3/4 mile below Smith Creek, close to the take out. You should definitely scout this one BEFORE putting on the river. The scout is easily done by walking to cliff edge where the road closely approaches the canyon on the way to Neal Bridge. It is 3/4 mile after you see Smith Creek entering the canyon. The portage is class V and only possible on the left. Do not take this one lightly.
river wide log jam taken out July 06. only far left channel opened, still use caution. pink ribbon on river left indicates approach
River wide log jam approx 2 miles above Neal bridge. Unrunnable with poor options for portage. Extreme danger at this time.

<?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.
