The Payette River block embraces the National Forest lands on the watershed of the Payette River, Idaho. The bulk of the watershed is in Boise County. The Payette empties into the Snake River at the town of Payette, which has about 2,000 inhabitants. There are three main branches of the river, (1) the South Fork, (2) the Middle Fork, and (3) the North Fork. From the broad point of view of sale management, the block should be considered as the entire watershed, since resources and interests, other than those of the National Forest, influence to lesser or greater extent National Forest policies.
