Fire on Salmon River Road.

The Cove Creek fire is really close to Panther Creek and a bit downstream of Shoup. The fire has not stopped traffic on the road at this time. If it does it could affect access to the Main Salmon launch at Corn Creek and affect traffic coming off the Middle Fork.

Hope this doesn't mess up anyone's river trip. They are asking traffic to not stop in the fire affected areas.

On the #CoveCreekFire, firefighter and public safety is a priority. Help us to keep the Salmon River Road open. If you are driving on the Salmon River Road (#030), please SLOW DOWN, but DO NOT STOP in and around the fire area. There is an increase in traffic attributed to the fire suppression effort.

In another post they mentioned not to linger around where helicopters are dipping out of the river. Please drive slow and dont stop. If people do not abide by this they will close the road for safety.
