South Fork Salmon

There was a post in April about a log in Devils Creek rapid. Anybody have any recent beta on this?

Nothing recent but I heard from SF Salmon boaters that it would be above the surface at these current levels. Scout right to see the log better than from the left.

I wasn't on the trip, but I had friends do a SFS a couple weeks ago. The log in Devil's creek is obstructing the bottom portion of the river left line. I saw video at least. The group was able to make it over/around the log.
It looked like it could become sketchy with a raft as the water drops. Surely someone who has seen it in person will comment below.

I was there on May 25th. We had heard that the log was gone and we did NOT see it.

The level was 4.2

It could have just been underwater, but again, we saw no signs of it. I have some friends there now and I can ask them about it as well. If they reply, I will post again.

Hi again, my friends just got off the river today (June 16th). They say no wood in Devil's Creek, all clean.

So have fun out there!

We have a South Fork trip planned for a July 2 launch. Flows are below 2.6' now keep dropping pretty quickly - what is the river like in the low 2' range? Below?

Thanks.
