  1. Advice on Main Salmon in August

    Rafting | Trip Planner
    Buzzards, I'm considering putting together my first Salmon trip, and I think I'm relegated to August due to my schedule. I'm considering a couple options--the general vicinity of North Fork to Corn Creek, and Vinegar Down to Slate Creek or so. Based on the forums I've read, it sounds like the...

    Looking for options to get a 14' Dagger Caption tandem canoe to Boise or McCall, ID (Ketchum?) between 1 August and 4 September.

    Rafting | Trip Planner
    I see from the calendar that the Yampa if full up through November. Do people really run it that low. On another note, is there a projection for what the flows below the dam on the Green will be for August.

  6. What did I miss? FS proposal to close MF Salmon in August?

    River Access & Safety Alerts!
    So did I miss this discussion when I was up to my ears in Idaho powder? Thursday night I got a mangled description of a bill being proposed by the FS that buried deep in the fine print had a complete August closure for river corridor/wilderness protection. The local guiding industry got wind...
  7. Road Trip in August?

    Rafting | Trip Planner
    We (and our whole group) struck out on the lottery. We’ve been successful in the cancellation pick up in years past but I get tired of the constant website checking. We are thinking of doing a car camping road trip and hitting multiple day trip runs over a week. Years ago we would do this...
