Alpine Canyon stretch has a bunch of play spots depending on flow. For Victor/Driggs folks, 1-2 hrs, for Jackson folks, 20-45 minutes depending on where they live.
I'm all for fish habitat. If that or another true environmental problem is not the issue and it's a bunch of wealthy nimbys complaining, I propose a 200 yard setback from the river for all the richy riches for their $20m homes unless a park can go in. No grandfathering either. It's navigable water and I don't want MY experience floating it ruined by mansions in the view shed. Just like the affluent don't want the riff raff around.
I honestly don't know enough about the debate though. I've taken a "shower" at the proposed site after sleeping in my truck and logistically, it seems like an awesome spot for a wave but I'm not a scientist.
