Bruneau River Rafting Trip!

Post by shawn on Thu 09 May 2013, 12:23 pm

Hi all, me and a few friends are planning a rafting trip down the Bruneau River in Idaho over Memorial Day weekend. They have good snowpack up there this year, so it should hopefully be running by then. Right now we have two small rafts committed, but are open to another raft and kayakers. It's a 40 mile stretch that we are thinking of doing in 2 1/2 days. Check out the American Whitewater description for more info on the run itself. We wanted to tack on the Jarbidge as well, but some of us can't get the extra time off work. Probably the biggest challenge for this trip is the gnarly road to the put in. Definitely a 4WD trail.

If you are interested in joining, don't be shy! If you are a kayaker, we'll be happy to haul your gear and beer. Also, if you have any past experience or beta on this run, feel free to chime in.

The snowpack report below only shows about 66% of normal. You might be short on water.

Hey, thanks for the link! Looks like it's at 89% of normal for total precipitation (since October), but only 66% of average for snow water equivalent. I think the current snow pack (reflected by this last number) is what matters, so things are not looking as good as I had hoped. This one might turn into a self support kayak trip if we don't have the flows!

I am interested either way. Where are you driving from? I would need to car-pool there.

Hey guys, the plan is to leave from Salt Lake. And yeah, carpooling for sure. Right now the big question is water. I'll shoot you guys a pm and we can talk more.
