It's worth doing, I've been down a couple times, earlier is better for water, low water is a complete rock dodge with a LOT of pushing and pulling, we got snowed on once, about 6 inches, was cool looking at the cactus in the snow. The Indian fees are off putting though and while I haven't been there in years, the put in is sorta a pain.

Here is a video at about 1800+ CFS to show you how much the river changes with different flows. GW Hayduke's was about 1000 CFS more than this one.

Hey George. Awesome video. After all the input I have received I have decided it is worth the trip if the flows are running. It seems the consensus is that the Salt is definitely worth the drive

Hey Cody

Nice! I had already found your video on Youtube. Super cool. Thanks for your advice, and all the advice you have given me on the Main Salmon in the past. Hope all is well in Salmon!

Always glad to give out any info that I can and help someones trip come together.

I just checked the stats for the video and it went from 1 to 3 views a day to 63 on the day permits where released. It's kind of fun to watch, i expect the same for my low water middle fork video come tomorrow.
