MF Salmon

Might have a trip invite in late sept on MF of Salmon. Should I assume that means flying in part way?
What can you expect in terms of rapid difficulty this time of year?

Do you need a permit ?(I am not heading this one up and have not been here before)

MF Newbie (thanks)

Permit - yes.
Water level - 1.57 ft. today. We don't like to go below 1.5 ft., but that is a personal choice thing. Low water, technical rafting, lots of rocks to get stuck on, class III - IVish in places.
Fly-in - We always fly-in to Indian Creek in September, but again that's a personal choice thing. Many people go from Boundary even at low water. Just depends on your tolerance for getting stuck & working extra hard the first two days. The flight into Indian Creek takes about 30-45 minutes from Salmon and is pretty cool, with an exciting landing.

If you're up for it, it's a spectacular trip.

What do you guys pay to fly in from salmon and who do you use? I am considering it for next fall.

Salmon Air out of Salmon. I don't do the booking, so I don't know the exact price. But with 4 people on the trip for 8 days it comes to about $700 per person total for the trip. That's everything, plane, food, gas, shuttle, permit, etc. This is using two Islanders (Twin prop plane) for all our gear, 4 boats, 4 humans, and one brown Lab. We used to be able to do it with one Islander and one Cessna single engine, but they don't use the gear pod under the Cessna anymore, so it doesn't all fit, and we have to use two Islanders. The flight takes about 35-45 minutes, and it's a pretty cool experience. The landing on that little gravel strip at Indian Creek is a hoot.
