The Murtaugh Reach changes dramatically with water flows on the Upper Snake River.

The run features Pair-A-Dice, Let’s Make a Deal, Duckblind, Troll Holl and Idaho Connection (great for surfing) rapids. The level of difficulty changes with the level of water, but typically class 3-5 rapids. Kayakers and some rafts can run the Murtaugh as low as 1,200 cfs, but rafters are better to be above 5,500 cfs.
