We put on the MF Salmon on 6/19 and we heard at Indian Creek that on 6/20 there was a river-wide log jam that pinned up to 4 boats above Velvet Falls! Does anyone have details on this or can confirm/deny?

Not river wide. A single log it sounded like in a bad spot. Above the scout eddy, but below Hells Half Mile. I think it is on the FS site but too lazy to look to confirm.

From the FS site

MIDDLE FORK BOATERS:
CAUTION: Boater Hazard Report - at Rock Island, there are two large logs on the center rock that are pinned extending into both sides of the river channel, creating nasty strainers. Update: The log above Velvet Falls is no longer there and all rafts have been recovered.
On Marsh Creek, a raft is still pinned on a strainer and anchored to a tree on the left side of Marsh Creek about 1/2 mile below the pack bridge over Marsh Creek. There have been other reports about river-wide logs in Marsh Creek.
