The water of the Payette's NF is very warm as it pours over the top of the Cascade Dam. The first two miles are populated by a few small class II's until you get to Tresstle Rapids. After this long set of wave-trains there is another couple of miles of slower water until you get to WetSpot (look for great lunch spots in this area!)

After WetSpot it is pretty busy water all the way through Howards. This part of the river meets back up with the road and passes under the beautiful Rainbow Bridge. After running Howards sit back for a slow cruise for the last mile to the takeout at Cougar Mt. Lodge (Cost is $5/vehicle but you can also park at the turnout at Howards.)
