Drive or Hike up the road from the lochsa...Putin below the fish wier...running it would be sure death....There is a good run above this...it is a hike up. Watch out for the falls about a mile up
There is also a government gauge on Fish Creek. It is just above the Fish/Lochsa confluence on the left side of Fish Ck. I ran it at 3.5' on this gauge and there was enough water.
This is the Lochsa gage, and thus should be used with caution when evaluating whether or not to make the trip for this run.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

<?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!
