Main Salmon Road closed

InciWeb the Incident Information System: Mustang Complex Announcement

I'm not sure what this means for MFS salmon boater but Main Salmon boaters can still launch. Boaters should be prepared to launch from Cove Creek instead of Corn Creek for Main Salmon River trips. Permits for this additional river use will be issued at the North Fork Ranger Station.

Took this pic yesterday about 6pm. Looks pretty nasty at the middle/main confluence.

Cove creek is about a mile after the second bridge that crosses the river after you turn at north fork, where you cross back to the river right side.

Has anyone gotten off the Main Salmon in the last few days? Need input on the river conditions and smoke/ash situation. Supposed to launch Friday August 17.

My brother did... 3 days ago.

Said they got smoked out on the last day. Said it was getting pretty bad in there.

Also, just by following this stuff here in Idaho... I wouldn't expect it to get any better in the next few weeks. With the Mustang Complex (Salmon), Halstead (Seafoam/Bear Valley area), Trinities (Middle Fork Boise area), and even the Springs fire (Payettes)... these are all at low containment and don't expect to be 50% contained til at least Sept.

Thanks for the info! I was hoping it would be better further down the river, but sounds like it's not.
