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.

Gage Descriptions

This is the Lochsa gage, and thus should be used with caution when evaluating whether or not to make the trip for this run.

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.
