Main Fork Salmon Levels

Has anyone rafted the Main Fork of The Salmon at current flow levels (47k+)? Is it runnable?

Yes and Yes. A lot of it washes out at this level. Watch out for whiplash, its kind of a big Pistol Creek, with bigger waves and a bigger river. Chittam can be unpredictable, and if you decide to go all the way to Riggins, watch out for the holes in Ruby and Lake Creek? rapids. They can get big. It has been a while, but that's my memory. Know some guys that ran it from Marsh Creek in 1997 and it was 109,000 at Riggins at the takeout. They had a flip in ruby or lake creek can remember.

There is no Main Fork of the Salmon.

There is a Middle Fork of the Salmon.

There is also a Main Salmon River.


What are you on about?

There is also a South Fork Salmon, but neither the South or Middle Fork ever get to 47k (I assume CFS)

Don't try logic with me.

This person needs to know this is the Mighty Main not a fork. Or Fork, or a spoon or some other shit.

It's not a goddamed fork.

I'm confused. Is it the Middle spoon and the Shoup gauge spoon that make up the Main Fork?
