This is a great paddle down the South Fork of the Snake River below the Palisades Dam. Put in at the dam and float down to the Spring Creek ramp. Make sure to have a car or ride waiting for you at the end. This is a great stretch for fishing as well. The current is fast enough to keep you going without paddling but there are no rapids. You will also pass the Fall Creek Falls. You can see it from the river.Show more
