Boundary creek closed MFSR

looks like the prospect fire just closed the boundary creek road. Thought I would post for any late season floaters hoping to hit the middle fork.

Thanks for posting. I saw this a couple hours before getting a notification from the FS, so it wasn't a surprisingly bad email to get at the end of the day. I launch on the 3rd, and the rangers said they'll be reassessing by Monday morning. Dry and windy for the most part, and then maybe a change on Sunday. The email said there are 8 firefighters and 2 helicopters assigned in the Prospect Creek and Morehead Creek drainages, and more air support arriving around now. Good luck with everything, people.

looking at the inciweb map the fire has jumped the river and burned from doors rock almost down to ramshorn. I don't think there are very many well used camps in that area. So rapids that have been burned over include doors rock, pin ball, and sulpher slide..

Do you have a link to the Inciweb map? All I could find is the road closure map.

First time I have been denied by the Middle Fork. We were launching yesterday and almost ready as we watched downstream the plume and some helicopters working around Morgan Ranch.

Then it started going. I had some trepidation before but when I saw Gina in her FS issue firefighter garb walking toward us with a grim face, that it wasn't good news. Then a crew showed up to do structure protection at the ramp the next morning. That guy said while he couldn't stop us from launching but the order was coming down.


So after a beautiful evening at Boundary Creek we are headed to the Main tomorrow. Should be awesome.

That must have been later yesterday. When we came out at about noon the wind was just starting. Where did you find this?

I also posted on the thread about Main camp sites if you are willing to share.

It sure sucks to see another section burn.
Bummer for you, Carvedog. Have a wonderful Mainer.
