Trip information: Average flow is 1 foot or less this time of year, perfect for putting your camping gear into a dry bag and tossing it in your IK for a float down the Selway.  We put in after the permit season is over, so no check in or inspection, just show up and go.  Shouldn’t have a lot of crowds, either.  The downside is the slow current, so we may have to work to make the miles.  Put in will be by 2 PM on Thursday, August 6th, and taking out above Selway Falls by early afternoon on Sunday the 9th for the drive home.  We’ll limit this trip to 6 IKs to keep the group fast and light; not for beginners.  Disclaimer: I’ve never done this river, but I’m told it’s a bucket list trip.
