This stretch is not even close to class IV... the narrows has a couple of holes but other than that it is mellow

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.

1207760 06/21/17 Bill Hunt Changed the rating from 4 to 3+, I would like to put 3/3+ but its not available. As per the comment, and, we paddled Piece of Cake rapid at 5500cfs and its class 3. Also talked to a guide at White Otter and most of the summer at lower flows this is 2-3.
1207761 06/21/17 Bill Hunt Added an abstract and a bit of description. This section should be split in two, ending at Torreys.
