ROTTEN LOG ON LOWER SALMON
We also just got off the Lower Salmon on Wednesday. I jumped off the log a few times and noticed how rotten and spongy the last 12-18" had become since last year. I jumped from a couple feet back from the end with no problems.
Be cautious about jumping too far back from the end as it does get shallower. I very briefly and gently touched the bottom once when I jump from the right side a few feet back from the end.
At the Hammer Creek boat ramp I talked to a guy who witnessed the boat wrap at Snow Hole Rapid. He said the guy didn't make any moves above the rapid and went right into the rock. Lucky no one was killed. I think that boat will be there a while longer. Not worth the risk to recover. I heard it was a rental boat. There's danger out there boys and girls.
Trip was great as always. 6 nights 7 days of fun in the sun.
Yellow Jackets were only a problem the first 2 days but not aggressive if you left them alone to drink on your pile of empties.
