South Fork Clearwater River Basin

The South Fork Clearwater River Plan was adopted by the Idaho Water Resource Board in 2004 and approved by the legislature in 2005.


The South Fork Clearwater River basin has two distinct parts. The northwestern portion, the Camas Prairie, is rolling plateaus and prairies, and a major dry land agricultural area of the State of Idaho. It accounts for about 20% of the basin's land area. The eastern portion is forested, mountainous and sparsely populated with about 68% of the land area within the Nez Perce National Forest.
