    Rafting | Trip Planner
    Some friends and I will be in Boise the weekend of September 18th and we are looking for a 1 day rafting trip within 3-5 hours from Boise. Any recommendations? I've looked up the Snake River through Hell's Canyon and it looks awesome but I can't find any outfitters online that do day trips...

  5. Rafting North Fork Boise

    Whitewater Rafting
    ...I'm thinking a taking a 14 foot oar rig down it, but was looking for some first hand info from anyone that has rafted it. Looks like it has the potential to be very tight. Want to make sure it not a mistake. I've rafted plenty of similar rated runs like Grandjean and the Canyon of SF...

    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone is driving from Portland to Boise anytime in the near future and has room for a Nomad 8.5. Found a deal on CL in Portland but I'm in Boise. So I'd need you to pick it up from the seller and bring it to me in Boise. I know it's a long shot, but I will chip in...

  11. North Fork Boise

    Rafting | Trip Planner
    Considering a run on the North Fork on the 17th, Black rock to Troutdale. Planning to go light with two on a 14' ocelot in case of portage(s). Flows are calculating at around 3000 currently which is is above the guidebook rating so it may be fast and flat or a lot of scouting and lining...

  13. SF Boise

    Whitewater Rafting
    I heard a rumor that the obstacle (log?) that had been causing issues on the South Fork Boise the last couple of years is now gone, perhaps with 'help'. Can anyone confirm that rumor? I've never actually done this river and would love to try it next season.
  14. North Fork Boise

    Rafting | Trip Planner
    I'm sure it's much too late this season but I was wondering if anyone has run anything but a kayak down the North fork of the Boise. I've seen a video with really short cats but I have a 14' round and my cohort could run either an ocelot or a cougar. Has anyone attempted it? J Sent from my...

    Has anyone floated the SF Boise from Anderson Ranch dam to Danskin put-in since the fire/slides? Do you know what this run is like (any logs, trees, strainers, anything to look out for, etc)?
