FLOAT SEASON UPDATE
0 0

Well, it's not good news, but it's not necessarily bad news either. Here's where we stand at the moment with the Boise River float season.

Right now, the Boise River is flowing at about 9,000 cubic feet per second. To put it into perspective, Ada County Parks and Waterways prefers water flow to be between 750 and 1,000 cubic feet per second for safe river floating. That means, they need to get the river down 7,500 cubic feet before opening the river for floating.

All is not lost. Float season has been delayed before. In July of 2011, Ada County didn't start boat rentals until July 15th.

Chances are good we'll still have a float season, but it will be much shorter and start much later. Boat rentals stop on Labor Day.
