Where is Sater Cabin?
Little Creek Guard Station is owned by the USFS. I believe "Stater" is referring to the cabin owned by Idaho Fish and Game that is located about 100 yards upstream of the position of the log indicated on the aerial photo.

Sater Cabin is below Sunflower and above Jackass.....couple of guides cut a hole in the middle of it. It's passable in rafts and kayaks with an easy move as long as your paying attention. Should wash out in a couple of days.

Hope it doesn’t move to a blind corner and create a worse hazard. Thunder storms and blow outs could be bad in the future from the many drainages that were scorched last year.
Not the first tree in the river, won't be the last. It's certain to move in the next couple weeks.

Yeah, as you noted, with the mass of trees that will fall in the river in the next 3-4 years following last year's fires a few will be problems for sure.

Not a road report but Rec.gov re-posted updated notifications of USFS information on the M.F. permit page for Middle Fork & Marsh today as follows,

  • Middle Fork boaters have reported the following hazards to the River Office this season:
    4/19/22 - "Lots of wood in Marsh Creek. Tree in left channel at First Bend. River-wide tree at Hells Half Mile. River-wide tree below Sater Cabin." [FS note: Sater Cabin is just below Little Creek Guard Station.]
    4/29/22 - "Trees below Indian Creek were no problem. No problems at all."
    5/5/22 - The River Office has continued to get reports that Marsh Creek has more wood than in the past. Expect to portage.
Also, the river is on the rise finally.

Had some friends just run a self support kayak Middle Fork trip from Marsh. Definitely not feasible in a big raft rig.

[ADMIN NOTE - USER STARTED A SEPARATE THREAD ON THIS TOPIC, THREADS MERGED]
Is it too early to start the Boundary Creek launch road condition thread? For the locals up there, what are your projections. It seems as though the snow is sticking around a bit longer, at least relative to last year at this time. We have a June 5th launch.

Thanks!
