St. Joe River Whitewater Rafting from Tanner Grant on Vimeo.

RIVER RUNNING -- While fishermen have been chomping at their bits, whitewater rafters have been enjoying the prolonged high flows in Idaho's St. Joe River.

Tanner Grant of Spokane shot this video of a June 28 rafting trip on the Joe from Packsaddle Campground to Avery. The flows were around 7,900 cfs.

This week the flows are trending down below 5,000 cfs.
