Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.

It is a long shuttle, that I want to drive again, before I try to describe it.

Floated the South Fork June 21, 2010. Level 2500 cfs. Kayaker swam above logjam but made it to shore. Raft picked up kayak downstream. Kayaker unable to hike along shore as canyon extremely steep without shore. Kayaker had to swim downstream, towed by canoeist, to get to kayak. Water temp 35 degrees, without sun due to canyon walls. Very dangerous section due to cold water, lack of shoreline to use, lack of escape from 10 mile-long canyon and continuous Class III + at that level. --- Bill Tanger, FORVA, Roanoke VA

Gage Descriptions

This river is big fun at 1600, which is a very common level all summer, due to dam releases for power generation.

Idaho Proposes Registration Fee for Non-Motorized Boats

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.
