Check out the River Gypsies guide to North America by Leland and Andira Davis. They've done a great job of putting together the "must do" list for different regions of North America, and will give you a great idea of what's out there and when its going.

Idaho is going to be good

If Idaho is on your drive, there are a few that would be great to hit. The Jarbrige/Bruneau are good in April (need small raft or kayak), May is when the MF of the Salmon and the Payette usually gets pretty big. Memorial Weekend is a good time to hit the Lochsa...

Thanks for the tips everyone

Yeah we're planning on the Lochsa and Selway (got a permit) in idaho already (late may). I will be checking out some of those other rivers as well. I did get the river guide as well, but was just curious if anyone had a run they thought was just spectacular and would be a mortal sin if it was missed.

Depending on your route through Idaho the Mesa Falls area would be a very worthy stop. Spend two days, one to run the whole henrys fork section, portage the 114' footer and paddle down to mesa. This is a super classic drop. Day two paddle Bitch Creek. Only one class V drop but 13 miles of ridiculously scenic class III/IV action with a big water treat at the end when you join the Teton. Oh spend three days and run the Teton. The Bible calls this one of the best advaced runs in the book. I live halfway through the shuttle for the Selway. Pm me to swing by on that 4-5 hour shuttle.

P.S. make sure to scope the portage around upper mesa. This would be death to miss. I think this area is a must hit if driving by!
