Log hazard for Moyie River rafters at Eilene Dam

RIVERS — North Idaho river rafters have been watching a log that's jammed into a chute at Eilene Dam on the Moyie River northeast of Bonners Ferry, Idaho.

It poses an unavoidable hazard for rafters trying to complete the river float.

“Its still there, and it still poses a very serious hazard,” Todd Hoffman said in a post today on the North Idaho Whitewater Boating Facebook page. “A group of us went in and looked at it yesterday. We came to the unanimous conclusion that the log is not coming out any time soon. Unless we have a high flow event that manages to knock it loose, its probably going to be there for the foreseeable future.”
