Selway River (low flow) IK Trip
Date: August 6-9, 2015
Contact: Eric Ball,, 509-525-6134
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.
