Thanks for the reply. It will be my first trip to Idaho to boat so I'm looking forward to either way. Just out of curiosity, where can I find the foot marker for the water levels at Corn Creek? We have the Poudre Rock Report in Colorado to give a gauge for that river, just curious if there is something on the world wide web that would divulge that information.

It is possible, yes. Lots of rain can do amazing things to an otherwise low river. I'd say it is very unlikely.

"where can I find the foot marker for the water levels at Corn Creek?"

Corn creek is the launch of "the Main", a couple miles below the confluence of the middle and main forks. It doesn't tell you much about the middle fork, which is what this thread has been focused on and what I think you were asking about. If you were asking about 2000 cfs on the main in July that is a different story entirely.

Corn Creek conversion:
8.0 = 32,189
7.0 = 26,060
6.0 = 20,613
5.0 = 15,846
4.0 = 12,216
3.0 = 10,019
2.0 = 7,822
1.0 = 5,625
0.0 = 3,428

from :

If the question is where are the markers in a physical sense then they are painted on the launch ramp.

My apologies. I was referring to the Main, not the Middle. Thanks for the conversion chart though. Someday I'm hoping to get on the Middle.

I was hoping for a turn-a-round- doubtful it will happen at this point unless something epic happens. I've got a June 20th Selway launch and planned to boat the EFSF/SFS late June. On a normal year these dates would be ideal, but the snow pack is going fast. Guess it'll be kinda low unless we have some late season snow storms and/or big rain events...

Low Middle Fork

We have launched from Boundary as low as 1.7. We used small boats. Muni Me's and Puma's. Extremely technical water. We had a blast. But I have had some that have questioned my sanity. A commercial outfitter ran an empty boat dead head the same day. They were going to pick up passengers and gear at Indian Creek Air Strip. The guides were not happy campers. Indian Creek could be an option for your group. Fly in gear to pick up or fly your entire trip in. If you run from the top. I asked the commercial guides were they had the most issues with very low water. They mentioned that the Chutes gave them the most grief.

here's a video at 1.84 ft from late july 2013. I'm not sure what the lowest limit is, but this level is doable with someone who can read water...
Boats = 156R & 15' maravia. I got stuck in first bend for a second. I'm sure there were a few bumps and grinds, but overall a great scenic float and good fishing time.
Any day on the MF bets the hell out of just about anything else.

We have a Sept. 5th. Guess I better make a back up plan?
