Idaho’s Payette and Salmon Rivers Go HUGE this weekend!!


After a couple days of constant rain and some warmer weather to melt some snowpack – the Payette and Salmon Rivers have gone HUGE Friday and Saturday! The Payette peaked out at about 22,500 today (normal summer flows usually around 3k-4k) at the Horseshoe Bend gauge , and the Salmon at about 80,500 (in AprilĀ  we were surfing Mill Wave at 4,300)!! I clipped some screenshots of the graphs and tomorrow I’ll try and post the little bit of video I got this evening.

It will be interesting to see the changes after the water goes down. Standing on the river bank you could hear boulders moving down the rapids!
