Some snow is still flying and the Spring runoff has barely started, but white water connoisseurs are already hitting the Lochsa. Known for some of the most extreme whitewater in the Northwest, the Lochsa is only a short drive up Highway 12 into Idaho. While many white water enthusiast can be seen rafting in early May. Some are already braving the frigid waters.
