Middle Fork Fire and Drowning-

Hey guys, there is a strainer in the water around the fire in the canyon. It takes up 3/4ths of the rio. Be careful. You'll hear about it at the flying B when you stop.

On Friday a duckie went into the strainer and it ended in a drowning.

Be safe-

Here's some updated info from the Salmon-Challis NF website. Two areas with trees down in the river. Click on the Google Earth links for more info and a few pictures.
