Boating the St. Joe:
A variety of options await the novice or experienced boater. Difficulty increases with the spring runoff. Below the town of Avery, ID, it is easiest with short easy rapids and long pools. There are lots of inner tubers here in mid summer as well as canoes.
Above the town of Avery the river changes from easier sections to class IV drops.

While not necessary, some kind of pontoon boat/water craft is a real bonus in fishing below Avery, with several places to put in and float the river.
