The problem is politics are effecting boating in ways never seen before.

Ok, I started the thread. It's confirmed, People are idiots everywhere.Back to boating focused MFS considerations please.

I'm going to contact Patrick at Central Idaho RS and talk to him about a day of arrival vehicle shuttle for this year. Sounds like the best way to mitigate the issue of vandalism. I'll let you know what they say.

Idahoans who are on river right now (legally).... any trip reports?

That's a hell of an internet connection if they're posting TRs from the river.

Marsh Creek Trip Report 15 May 20

We just got off a trip putting in on Marsh Creek on 15 May. We had two rafts and three kayaks and none of us were familiar with Marsh creek. We felt it was manageable but a ton of hard work between getting stuck on rocks and portaging Dagger falls. I would definitely do it again in a kayak but would only do it again in a raft if Boundary Creek Rd was closed. We were shocked when, while eating breakfast at Dagger Falls campground, a 77 year old lady drove up in an Acura SUV. Joyce has a permit May 31st and drove out to open the road!

We had two issues on Marsh creek. One was a log 95% across the right channel around Mile five that we cut and moved. The other was at mile 3.2 where we lined the rafts through a shallow inside corner to avoid a log jam on the outside of the turn. To find this spot I recommend eddying out at the trail bridge at mile three and walking down stream on river right to next right hand bend. We had someone in the eddy 50' above the hazard help pull us into the small eddy then help us line/drag the boats over the shallows. We had just over 4' on MF Lodge gauge the day we did Marsh and we got stuck on dozens of rocks with heavy rafts which was the main detractor from it being "fun" with a little more water it might be more pleasant in a raft.

Looks like Idaho is moving to Stage 3 tomorrow. So we are good to go for our 6/14 launch!

Anyone know if commercial trips are running yet? Curious on how they are gonna allocate camps.

I'm not sure about trips that far in advance, but I launch Sunday, and I did my camp selection over the phone.

Ben,


How far in advance did you do the campsite selection? I launch two weeks from today and just sent in the email with the campsite requests. I'm curious of the timeline for all of this. Thanks!

Middle For SCAT machine information?

Hi everyone, does anyone know what the SCAT machine situation is? I'm launching June 30 and hoping they will be open by then. What about other options? We just use the standard groover cans and don't have the 4" tubing for RV dump sites. Has anyone used a sanitation company in Salmon before if so who?
