Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Just a heads up for all of you Beautiful River Riders... this was announced this morning.

Tuesday, Sept. 13: Middle Fork of the Salmon River - 1.58 feet, 582 cfs. Boundary Creek closes for the season at noon on Thursday, Sept. 15. After that, boaters launching from Boundary must stop at Indian Creek to pick up their permit and get camp assignments. Have a great fall float!

Check out U.S. Forest Service - Salmon-Challis National Forest for more information and keep it splashy all. ~ Renee

How is running the MFS this at these levels? I would have thought it would be just about IK levels

It sucks. You can barely get down in an IK.

We went down couple weeks ago at 1.61 it was awesome. Definitely some pushing and pulling on the first two days but after that easy floating and gorgeous.

Gotta agree with Carve. No way you should do it. The river is so low that after a couple of miles you will realize your folly, roll your boat up, and leave it on the side of the river to be retrieved next season.

We have plenty of folks still running the Middle Fork, you just need to keep your boat light for the first 2 days and then fly supplies into Indian Creek or Flying B for necessities on the rest of the trip! Yep, you will be pulling and pushing a bit but any day on the river is a really good day, it's still worth the effort At least in our humble opinion

Good overnight bump to 1.77 or so. Lot of river above the gauge. Hopefully not an isolated storm with a big blowout. The permit cancellation saga continues. We privates lost well over half our allocation from Aug. 15 - Sept. 15. What the hell is wrong here? Too easy to cancel a permit?
