The River's Rising 

Lots of snow and all that sorta-nice weather makes for a splashy river. River managers tell us that Lucky Peak irrigation releases will have the Boise River really moving this month. Increased flows began April 17, and are likely to reach 1,500 cubic feet per second this week.

The Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be increasing water releases from Lucky Peak Reservoir over the next several weeks to help manage water flows during the spring runoff period.

These flows may also cause minor stream bank erosion and could possibly displace early nesting waterfowl and other wildlife that reside along the stream corridor.
