There’s Something Incredible About These 12 Rivers In Idaho

You already know that Idaho has the most river miles of any other state in the country (over 3,100 miles, to be exact). You also know that Idaho’s rivers are magical, scenic, rushing, and often untamed despite our desert climate, which in itself is a geologic and natural wonder.

But Idaho’s rivers are also a source of life, here. Waterfront towns depend on them for irrigation, recreation, and energy, while our wildlife and flora depend on them to nourish the beauty of our landscape. That’s why with fishing and travel season upon us, it’s time to get up close and personal with just a few of our state’s beautiful rivers – listed here in no particular order.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

We have so many gorgeous rivers to choose from here! Do you have any favorites? Just remember, wherever you go this season to enjoy Idaho’s beauty up close, be sure to share your photos and stories with us!
