Runnable flow range is 900cfs up with the best between 1200cfs and 1600cfs. Most of the run is class II swiftwater with one class III where Binarch Creek enters from river right. A great step up for boaters comming off the upper Spokane. Water quality is alway great and this area is beautiful. Many small play waves. Run takes about an hour so laps are easy.
Putin is at a pullout just below the outlet damn and the takeout is at Dickensheet Campground.

<?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.
