lets talk about the snake river......

...below Murtagh. My pops (who isn't a member) is going to be in the Twin Falls area in late September, and is looking for some beta.

What is the run like around the town of Buhl? What about downstream near Hagerman? Is there a good class II+ run somewhere he could get his boat in? Access? Shuttles? Thanks for any info!

Murtaugh isn't running and probably won't for the rest of the year.

Around Buhl/Hagerman, you have:

-Sewer Run on the Snake (closer to Twin Falls). Class III+, short run.

-Bliss Run / Wiley Reach. Short class III-, but right now has three good on-the-fly surf waves, and Chris's Hole, which is a monster surf wave. Take a playboat just for that. The run is about 45 minutes if you take out at Relish, or 1.5 hours if you take out at the bridge. Put in just after Malad Gorge bridge, on the right if you're headed toward Hagerman.

-Malad. Short 5-10 minute Class III-ish steep creeking. Really fun but pretty rocky... need to know the lines. It's the opposite side of the highway from the entrance to Bliss run.

-Riley Falls / Box Canyon. Good intro water falls.

-Deep Creek. Class IV+ creeking closer to Buhl. 2 waterfall drops, good cow-piss infused water. Yum. Will destroy your boat.

word, thanks for the beta. if i was going i would use this as my hit list.

unfortunately, I wont be going, its just going to be my mom and dad. so, i guess let me rephrase my question:

Where is some good class II, on the Snake, betweeen the towns of Buhl and Hagerman? Is there a class II run that has good access? Thanks so much!
