Big flows on the NF Payette

So big in there at the current flows! Video of a trip back to the NF a week and a half ago.

15 miles top to bottom for NF Payette proper. It's split into three sections-upper, middle and lower. The progression is lower, upper, middle walking Jake's, middle w/Jake's. Four big class Vs on the upper. 11 in the middle with Jake's and Ocean Wave being the crux of the middle and four easier Vs in the lower at "normal" flows.

These flows are rockin'. Never done Middle or Upper at these flows but there is some serious boating going on by the folks who are. Last time I did the Lower five miles at flows like these I was way ahead of the shuttle car that left the put in when we did. I want to say at this flow you could run the whole thing in less than an hour if you pinned it. I think my fastest lower time was around 18 minutes.
