Payette River Basin Now A Little Below Average…


Well, precipitation wise the Boise area and Southwestern Idaho started off slow, had a great December and January, and now February has proven to be fairly dry.

This graph shows the details for Banner Summit and the Payette River Basin. Red line is precip this year and the red line is snow-water equivalent. Ornage and lignt-blue represent historical averages.

Unless we have a wet spring (which I’m not crazy about either) we won’t have the banner year we had in 2008, but we still should see some great paddling through the summer.

There are many events planned for the Boise area this year including the Payette River Experience (PRE), the PBR and of course the WorldKayak Hometown Throwdowns. We are even scheduled to have a ‘Survivor Slalom’ thrown in the mix. Hope to see you here!
