MF Salmon Any Beta

Launching Aug 9 on the MF of the Salmon. All first timers going. Wondering if anybody has recently come off the river and has any beta? Any big changes or things we should know about? Any tips or not to miss camp spots and hikes?

I would get a guidebook, they seem to have a couple really good ones. I used this one for a July trip:

Middle Fork of the Salmon Guide Book

Pretty good for all the side hikes and history. Definitely hit up Veil Falls, Flying B Ranch, Loon Creek Ranch/Hot Springs - it's a sweet trip. All of our camp sites were cool and I was told we did not even get the good ones.

There are fires burning down in the Waterfall Creek area. Apparently a couple of camps are closed but not sure where.

The FS will have more info.

There are too many "must dos" to post up here.

PM me if you want some ideas or we can have a phone conversation at some point.

How many people and how many days you are going will determine some things like where you can stay. Which could mean a layover or not.
I hope you are taking 8 days. I would if possible.

Heh, I floated the Main Fork back in 1993 while the whole thing was on fire. (They closed the river the day after we put on.) Sort of spooky to float through a burning forest.

+1 to above, the guidebooks have a lot of good info.
