Upper salt river

Anyone know what the odds of getting drawn for a permit are on the upper salt river?

Not sure of the odds, but we got three permits this year. Unfortunately they were too late in the season and there wasn't enough water. Suppose to be a good winter coming up. Good luck and save a spot for me. : )

That depends first on what date you apply for, and second how many other folks apply for the same date. It also depends on if they run the lottery like they did last year...

I have known people that get a ton of permits their first season applying. I tend to get lucky if I get one a year....out of a half dozen or so applications.

Years ago, Salt permits were a lot easier to get, especially if you had a group to all enter the drawing. Salt has now become a very popular run and with all the dry months lately even if you do hit the permit draw, chances of water is slim to none.

I need to find more people to submit it sounds like. I have 6 people so far. I really want to get drawn this year because they are saying it should be a good snow year.

Add me to the list. What dates are we aiming for? This is supposedly the strongest El Nino year in a decade so this should be very good for snowpack in the White Mountains and Salt flows this Spring.

I'm in! I ran it once at 850, had a permit for last season, but cancelled for lack of water.
