Class V West Fork Bruneau River, ID

West Bruneau Wild and Scenic River (Downstream boundary of the Bruneau Canyon Grazing Allotment in the Southeast/Northeast quadrants of Section 5, Township 13 South, Range 7 East, Boise Meridian to the confluence with the Jarbidge River )

The West Fork Bruneau River is a 1/3 mile stretch which joins with the Jarbidge River to form the Bruneau River about 24 miles north of the Nevada border, just upstream of Indian Hot Springs. The canyon opens up at this portion of the river through the designated 0.3 miles and then becomes narrower as the Bruneau River flows north. This is a boatable section of river.
