Abstract
  • Recreational activity is growing faster than facilities can be built to keep up with demand. This is evident during periods of peak use such as the summer for water based activities and the winter for snow related pursuits. During these periods of intense use, many recreationalists cannot find the facilities to use, or if they do, there are more users than the facility can accommodate without undue stress upon the environment and/or user satisfaction. More areas are needed to offset this intense use of and competition for facilities. Once there is a greater choice, many of the recreationalists will disperse, thus relieving some of the intense pressures of the now existing recreational sites. One of the prerequisites in site selection is a variety in uses. Planners are searching for areas that offer something different, be it a single purpose or a multiple purpose site. One area that is both unique and offers a different form of recreational pursuit is the Hells Canyon area of the Snake River. The location of the area is far removed from the population centers of the Pacific Northwest, but it is not too far away to attract recreationalists that can use the canyon for longer than one day. Accessibility to the canyon is difficult which will limit the great numbers of users that are typical at other recreational sites. However, the variety of things that can be done in the canyon offers the user a thrilling recreational experience that is hard to attain anywhere else. The purpose of this research paper is to determine if enough water is available for recreational use of Hells Canyon during the peak recreational season - the summer. Summer use will consist primarily of white water boating that needs water in sufficient quantity to make the float downriver enjoyable. One must realize that most areas have a potential for development but the site usually lacks a basic ingredient which in turn will limit full utilization of the resource. In the case of Hells Canyon, adequate water during the recreation season will be the determining factor in deciding its best uses.
