Teton Water Sports Update

Sponsored by Rendezvous River Sports



Conditions Summary

Area waters are warmer than normal offering comfortable access to paddle sport enthusiasts. String Lake and Leigh Lake in Grand Teton National Park are in great options for SUP and paddling adventures this time of year. The Snake River Canyon, currently flowing at 5,500 cfs, is at a fun level for rafting, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. Kahuna Wave is currently the largest rapid on the river and in prime surfing condition.

With river flow in this range, Aaron Pruzan highly recommends whitewater enthusiasts enjoy an inflatable kayak tour, offered exclusively by the team at Rendezvous River Sports. The Inflatable Kayak, or Rubber Duckie, is a unique and exciting way of going down the river for the whole family, with no previous experience necessary. Inflatable kayaking can be exciting because boaters are in complete control of their own raft at all times.

SUP Spotlight: The Teton River

The upper section of the Teton River in Teton Valley Idaho offers excellent stand up paddle boarding water that gradually flows from Victor ID to Driggs ID with a series of stretches that vary in length. The winding river keeps paddlers actively navigating its gently flowing waters. The Teton River is an excellent destination to try new water and enjoy mellow floats with scenic views. Past Harrops Bridge in Driggs, the Teton River turns into very difficult Class V whitewater water and should be avoided.
