This is the Minidoka Damn in the spring of 2009 when water levels were reaching high levels. The normal flow for this time of year is around 5,000(cfs) and when this photo was taken the flow was at 14,000(cfs). For those who live on the river in the Burley/Rupert sometimes see their back yard partially under water.

About the author

Jason Lugo - After many summer boating trips to the Snake River in Declo it didn't take long for Jason Lugo to realize that this is where he had to live. So he moved his family from the Herriman Utah to Declo in February of 2006 and never looked back. Being a graphic artist and photographer Jason began to discover this beautiful region through his lens. With his experience in producing a Utah magazine, it didn't take long for Jason to conceptualize and bring to life Southern Idaho Living Magazine. So now he enjoys meeting new people and discovering new places as he travels Southern Idaho shooting photography and producing great stories for Southern Idaho Living.
