What is the Non-Motorized Period?

The 1994 Wild and Scenic Snake River Recreation Management Plan (revised in 1999) established 2 seasons to manage river use. The primary season is from the Friday before Memorial Day through September 10, inclusive. During the primary season, motorized craft will not be permitted access to the section of wild river between the top of Wild Sheep Rapid and the upper landing at Kirkwood Historic Ranch, Monday through Wednesday, every other week, starting the first Monday of June for a maximum of 21 days. When the nonmotorized period falls on a 4th of July weekend (i.e., July 4 is on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday), the nonmotorized period is moved to the following week, and will alternate every other week until the end of that primary season. This limitation of motorized use is known as the non-motorized period. The amount of  both commercial and private, float and powerboat use is regulated during the primary season. 

The secondary season is from September 11 through the Thursday before Memorial Day. During the secondary season, there are no use level restrictions on watercraft in the wild and scenic river.
