Trip information:  The Lochsa is a snow-melt class IV-V river.  It is big time whitewaer with huge wave trains and some big holes.  This is not a river for ID's or beginners.  Flips and swims are commonplace.  Five to ten flips per trip is not uncommon.  Wetsuits are mandatory and a drysuit is preferable.  Helmets are invaluable for proteting your head from flying oars and bodies when you have that inevitable flip.
