BOISE, Idaho — We are getting one step closer to float season on the Boise River. Several agencies were out evaluating the river Friday morning.
Boise Parks and Recreation, Ada County Sheriff's Office, and Idaho Fish and Game are coordinating efforts for river evaluation and mitigation.
The Boise Fire Department is also on hand keeping a close eye for downed trees and other hazards on the river throughout float season. Not all hazards can be mitigated and recreationalists should always be aware of their environment and its dangers.
Officials haven't released an opening date yet, but say the river could be open before the fourth of July.
River flows are expected to hit 1200 CFS after this weekend.
