Do you have a Middle Fork Salmon permit?

Two rafts looking for an invitation: We tried the lottery and also tried to pick up a cancellation, but no luck. I want to take my brother (who will be home from Africa this summer) and some nieces and nephews down the middle fork. There would probably be about six people in two rafts. We are experienced boaters (Tuolumne, Grand Canyon, Nile), low key, group oriented, good company. We could participate in group equipment or be self contained. We would also bring an inflatable kayak to share. Please contact Steve if you want to talk about the possibility. Thanks! (Picture is Hermit Rapid, mile 95 on the Grand Canyon)

Hey there! Just be packed and ready to go and call the end of May when the water starts coming up. The cancellations will start happening when the ranger says the water is too high and they recomend you not go. People drop like flys at the sounds of 7 feet on the gauge. We did it in 2008 and had the time of our lives at around 8 feet.

Ed, seems like you haven't heard. They are no longer issuing canceled permits on the middle fork from August 15- September 15

I think he's talking a may or June cancellation when the primary reason is high water not low. Too much financial incentive to not let people run this river. Someones gotta pay for the rangers
