In the last two weeks, record rain sent the North Fork of the Payette sky rocketing to unprecedented levels, tipping the USGS gauges between 8-9,000 CFS. Calling it historic isn’t a stretch. Jacob’s Ladder was dialed at never-before-paddled levels when James Byrd and Tristan McClaren fired up the gnar. Want to see what it looks like without dipping a paddle in the mayhem? Check out this trailer from an upcoming film, Wildwater, a collaboration of Anson Fogel, Jason Dewey and Doug Ammons.
