Yeah, it is not real intuitive. If you are going down to the the 288 bridge (Roosevelt) you will need a two day pass for each person on the trip. For the additional people you will need to add them to your profile on the wmatoudoor.org website. Use the Rafting Private Daily permit, choose the person from the dropdown box, and put 2 into the days box. You will be paying $50 per person.
If you are doing the daily run process is the same but only 1 day in the second box.

And yes, no river permit from the forest service before March 1st. You will want a Tonto Pass for your vehicle. This is a daily hang tag for parked vehicles in the National Forest that you can pick up at many places locally (Circle K in Show Low or Globe).

If you look at the Colorado Basin River Forecast Center (CBRFC) it's going over 2000.
https://www.cbrfc.noaa.gov
It is the SLC site, can't just go by this, but it started raining in Flagstaff.

Get the permit online, you can save the permit electronically to your phone. Got checked at put in and saw the ranger leaving TO as we were pulling in.

Anyone interested in launching Feb 24 on the salt as we are down one boat to one solo cat and would like to have an extra boater on board.

Is there snow on the ground at the put-in?

I am planning to try to launch on Feb 28. The flows could be there (>1000 cfs) but my main concern is: is there snow on the ground as of today and how much? Anyone knows?

That's a good question as I know there is a storm rolling through up north in Showlow starting tomorrow that's supposedly going to dump upwards of 32" of snow.

You may want to call the office before you plan to launch on the 28th. I thought I saw somewhere that you need to be out of the wilderness section on the 28th. I could be wrong but it would suck to get ticketed and all your shit seized.

Also, if they do get the 2-3' predicted, there will probably be snow on the ground.
