Whitewater Rafting on the Lochsa River

The Wild & Scenic Lochsa River is navigable only during the short, high-water season, which typically runs from end of April through mid-June. We highly recommend booking your rafting trip with the experienced guides at Lewis and Clark Trail Adventures out of Lolo, Montana, Mammoth River Adventures out of Lowell, Idaho and ROW Adventures.

Lochsa River water data

One of the most important things to consider before embarking on a whitewater rafting adventure is the water data of the river you will be rafting on.

Water data includes information about the river's water level, flow rate, and temperature. This information is crucial for assessing the difficulty of the rapids and the potential risks involved in rafting them.
