Is the Salt done?

Levels are steadily dropping. Is the snowpack all gone?

I have no info on snowpack, but the forecast is here... I know not very reliable, but something...


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Just wanted to give a shout on the Salt. I launched on April 3rd, 7 people canceled and many thought the water would be too low. Put in at 800 CFS, (5 people, 1 14' foot raft, 1 16' cat) ran it for 5 full days, never had a problem. Looking at charts now it stayed between 900-800 cfs most of the week. It was shallow in some spots but never un-runable. Had to watch for rocks here and there but it was fine. If it was 600 cfs it might have been harder but a great trip no doubt. Ran eye of the needle, quartzite and corkscrew blind, made it through fine. Black rock at low water would be good to scout -tricky. My new favorite river!
