Triple digit temperatures are on the horizon across Southwest Idaho, and a nice, cool dip in the river is enticing. Currently, river conditions are not suitable for recreation, as the flows are fast and cold. However, starting June 27, the Boise River floating season will kick off. On June 20, Float the Boise partner agencies Ada County Parks and Waterways, Boise Parks and Recreation and Boise Fire gathered to announce the official kick off to the 2024 float season, according to a news release. The partner agencies have been closing monitoring conditions on the river. Flows are expected to drop below the 1,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) early next week, which will get the flow into more typical float conditions. The anticipated decrease in river speed will help Boise Fire to conduct "additional mitigation of hazards," said the news release.
