The North Fork of the Payette River is intense during average water years. At high water this stretch of the river is almost insane. The river is steep and narrow every year but with current record water flows the river is extremely fast.

Andrew Dunning posted the above video which highlights just how powerful and technical the North Fork of Payette is. Make sure you catch the last part of the video. Scary stuff!

You've probably seen this section of the Payette River. Hwy 55 runs right beside the river when traveling from Boise to McCall. Next time you make this journey, stop and check out Idaho's beauty.
