About the bruneau river
The Bruneau River is a 153-mile-long river located in southwestern Idaho, United States. It is a tributary of the Snake River and flows through the Owyhee Desert. The river has a rich history, being used by Native American tribes for fishing and hunting. It was also explored by French fur trappers in the early 1800s. The hydrology of the river is highly variable, with flows ranging from less than 1 cubic foot per second to over 11,000 cubic feet per second. There are no large reservoirs or dams on the Bruneau River, but there are several smaller ones used for irrigation purposes. The river is popular for recreation, with fishing, kayaking, and camping being common activities. The surrounding land is also used for agriculture, mainly for grazing livestock.
