Payette River, North Fork - Cabarton

Howard's Plunge

Rapid Details

Name Howard's Plunge
Class III to III+

This is the last biggie before the run ends.  This is essentially a giant funnel as the river squeezes down here.  Flipping is possible on any craft.  IK's and Kayakers will get worked more than rafts here (in general).  On the positive side there is a nice big calm pool below here you can use to gather all your gear together before if you swim before the take out.


Can scout on river right or from the road if you need or want to.
