Logs on Middle Fork.

I heard there may be logs past the Boundary Creek put in. Does anybody have any news on this?

I did see a couple of those threads. I know about the Marsh Creeks logs. Michelle from All River Shuttle said she talked with a kayaker who just got off the river. He said there were logs everywhere. I sure hope he just meant the logs were on Marsh Creek. We are planning on doing the river on May 27 with a few rookies.

I don't have info on logs below Dagger but logs like Dagger and pistol creek rapid in particular. It's not unusual for logs to stick in places on the Middle Fork outside of Marsh. Keep in touch with the rangers as they will get trip reports from people taking out and when they reach Indian Creek. If the road opens before your launch date there will probably be good beta. Hopefully there isn't a major log jam this year.

If major obatructions are reported they usually put it on their website, the one for the forest for that river. Search 4 rivers lottery, do not choose any of the recreation.gov results, and go to the forest. If there are just annoying logs, I wouldn't expect them to pass that on.

We should be hearing something soon. Carverdog heard of some folks launching and quite a few others are doing so in a week.

You could also check the idahowhitewater yahoo group, that topic will likely be picking up soon as launch day approaches for many.

I talked with the guy who kayaked from Marsh Creek all the way to Riggins in 3 days. He didn't see any log problems from Boundary on down. But, the river hasn't peaked so you have to be careful. Any loose logs can shift around.

When did the kayaker run it?


I called the FS today and the permittee that launched a cat a few days ago abandoned ship and walked out if I understood right.

Within the last week. The cat guy probably didn't make it down Marsh Creek.
