Fire crews are finding downed trees, root clusters, and branches this weekend as they clear debris from the Boise River.

The good news is river flows are down below 18-hundred cubic feet per second.

Earlier in the season flows were well above nine-thousand CFS.

Each triple-digit day brings us closer to a float season, so crews are acting now to clear the path between Barber and Ann Morrison parks.

It's a huge task requiring resources from the city, county and even Idaho Fish and Game.

Right now they're working on locating trouble spots, then crews will go back in and clear the areas.

No word yet on when the work will wrap up or when the floating season could start.
