MF Salmon, Aug. 13 launch
I have a permit for the MF Salmon and I'm looking for a few folks to join the trip. I picked up the cancellation prior to my GC trip and only told a few people. Due to work and the economy, most people dropped out or can't go.
Mid August's level should be 2.2 to 2.0, making this a fishing/camping trip. I've rowed the MF about 30 times, first time in 1974 and have done several low water trips. I'm planning on 8 days, launching at Boundry Creek, spending 3 days in the upper canyon, on that third day camping at Pistol or Indian Cr. I have a 14' Sotar, with all the stuff, and recommend only 14' and smaller boats. Last year, we did the same trip on Aug. 25 with 2-14' round boats and 4-people. Both rowers were good and we had only a few hang ups and we caught so many fish, we got tired of fishing, and put the gear away. This will be a shared expence trip. Approx. $200/person for user fees, ice and food. Gas, shuttle, beer, etc. will be extra.
