Jarbidge / Bruneau trips

Blutzki, RE: your question about the Jarbidge or the W. Fork Bruneau. I would say you should watch the gage pretty closely for one thing. If it stays cool over there but the flow at Hot Springs stays high, i.e. >1500, most of that flow will be coming from the E. and W. Forks of the Bruneau. That would make the W. Fork the right choice. If it warms up and the gage really cranks up, then that could mean the Jarbidge is starting to run higher. The Jarbidge is a hoot at really high flow, for competent Class IV boaters, but pretty damn boring at low flows. The W. Fork is definitely better action, more defined drops, etc., and a shorter and easier shuttle. The scenery is just as good, just different, and you can't get to the natural bridge at Cougar Creek (which is a long hike anyway). The camping on the first night on the Jarbidge is just better quality, and there are two campsites just ABOVE the confluence with the E. Fork Bruneau that make great 2nd night sites, saving all the good fun on the main Bruneau for the last day. Hope it goes well, whichever you decide to do. We are headed over to the Milner / Murtaugh Saturday for one more weekend of big water.
