The Jarbidge River is a remote 29 mile stretch of whitewater runnable in the spring. News that a new rapid formed reached us last week. According to John Barker of Barker River Expeditions, the new rapid was formed about 1/2 mile below Sevy Falls. Apparently a rock slide occured from river right and damning the entire river. A portage trail can be found on river left around the new falls. For those of you familiar with the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, the new rapid is roughly the size of Dagger Falls. If you have any information on the new rapid please post a comment below. We will post photos of the new rapid as soon as they become available.
