Excellent compilation of resources: I'll be sure to bookmark it. Keep up the good work, hope to see you on the river, DS
I realize your list is not meant to be comprehensive, but another great organization is,

PS. Why the comment moderation? Have you been having problems?
Thanks DS, I'll add Idaho Rivers to the list.

I use comment moderation because people have tried to spam my blog a couple of times. In addition, when I ask somebody to link to my blog I can guarantee that off-topic or inappropriate content will never be permitted on my blog.
