MF Salmon: Log Jam Above Velvet?

We put on the MF Salmon on 6/19 and we heard at Indian Creek that on 6/20 there was a river-wide log jam that pinned up to 4 boats above Velvet Falls! Does anyone have details on this or can confirm/deny?

Not river wide. A single log it sounded like in a bad spot. Above the scout eddy, but below Hells Half Mile. I think it is on the FS site but too lazy to look to confirm.

Thank for the info. Did they really cancel all other launches that day because of it?

From the FS site

MIDDLE FORK BOATERS:
CAUTION: Boater Hazard Report - at Rock Island, there are two large logs on the center rock that are pinned extending into both sides of the river channel, creating nasty strainers. Update: The log above Velvet Falls is no longer there and all rafts have been recovered.
On Marsh Creek, a raft is still pinned on a strainer and anchored to a tree on the left side of Marsh Creek about 1/2 mile below the pack bridge over Marsh Creek. There have been other reports about river-wide logs in Marsh Creek.
