Low Water Selway IK Trip
The good news: a friend scored a July 29 Selway permit and we're invited. The bad news: Idaho snowpack seems to be melting crazy fast. We seem to be headed for well under one foot by late July, and possibly closer to 0.5 feet.
What we'd originally planned as a light weight raft trip has now morphed into a plan to run the Selway in IK's, backpacking style. I've rafted it three times, from about 1.5 feet to 2.6 feet, but never in IK's.
Would love to hear about anybody's experiences running IK's low water on the Selway. Things that work, things that don't, particulary rapids that might be a problem in IK's, etc. Is there a level below which even an IK trip would be so much of boat dragging thrash that you wouldn't recommend it?
