Nobody wants to go, apparently it's too cold/low/early, and so on. Anyone interested, PM me.
In my opinion you would be much better off to float the Main Salmon in April.
You're the first person who comes to mind when anyone here asks about an early early MFS!I am all for people having fun. I would expect things like this depending on snow pack.

With all this said, I have walked on ice (as the river went under it) for maybe 10 miles of the middle fork during a mid winter trip. So I am all for a suffer fest. But man, portaging a raft around what is in that photo would be soul crushing.
squeaks2 (who posted above) is that guy!Swipe left on the haters and go right for the sick stuff. I see no issues with a March Creek April 16 launch what so ever. I actually believe there is a trip report in the Buzzard archive of a solo pack rafter pictured sliding over the ice damns below loon creek. If I were to make that run, I'd bring a back up willie warmer.. JMHO.
It is nice to know that crazy's are still out there who like portaging rafts , snow camping sucks, trying to find dry wood sucks, having sissy yakers climb up on my boat because their hands and ass are cold really sucks, just dead weight and they never contribute whiskey, beer or squat...dead weight, all of them.
