    And don't forget a big box of Orange Stimulators.

    The toilet paper in a zip lock. Nobody ever forgets the key.

    Successful cataract trip just finished. Take out was not ideal…we used the winch on the van and inflatable tubes (instead of the PVC pipes)

    Great weather. The trips that put in behind us got smoked w rain/hail/wind….

    Great trip, highlights were the friends, the scenery, the hikes and the whitewater. Dark canyon was spectacular and easy to access. Rapids all went well with the exception of #20. Dropped into a hole and when I dug in to push through the oar bounced off something and hit my abdomen pretty hard. Then somehow went under my pfd and launched me. We maytaged around once and I was able to grab back on and pull us out. Still pretty beat up.

    Posted today August 14, 2022 on the Salmon-Challis Facebook page:
    “A debris flow from Rams Horn Creek has entirely obstructed the Middle Fork of the Salmon River (MRSR) four (4) miles downstream of Boundary Creek Boat Launch.

    Downstream of the debris flow, other log jams have fully obstructed the MFSR.

    The debris flow has displaced the Ramshorn Pack Bridge that spanned Ramshorn Creek on the Middle Fork Trail (#4001). The bridge or pieces of the bridge are in the MFSR, location unknown.

    Agency officials are STRONGLY encouraging people to launch from the Indian Creek Launch Site or another access point further downstream of Indian Creek for the foreseeable future.

    Beginning Wednesday, 8/17, people can launch from Boundary Creek. However, Forest Officials are strongly discouraging launching from Boundary Creek or any point upstream of the Indian Creek Launch Site.

    Launching from Boundary Creek will likely result in several portages of significant distance. Boaters may encounter frequent obstructions with little to no time to react before encountering them.

    The Forest will continue to monitor the debris flow and any associated log jams.

    When floating the MFSR, always be prepared for debris in the river, including logs and other river obstructions. In the post-fire environment that makes up much of the Middle Fork River corridor, falling trees, rolling rocks, and other hazards may be encountered at any time.

    As there is access to the river, Forest Officials are not offering rollovers for launches next season.

    Forest Officials are allowing late cancellations, up to three days prior to your planned launch, without penalty.

    While the Forest continues to assess the situation, there are no immediate plans to try to remove the debris flow and associated obstructions.
    ��The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is located in the Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness. Wilderness is managed to allow natural ecological processes, such as this debris flow and log jams, to take place.
    ��Endangered Chinook Salmon are actively spawning in the Middle Fork and its tributaries
    ��A preliminary assessment determined that the use of explosives was not likely to be successful in removing the obstructions

    I do it differently. Sat is lower demand for whatever reason (drive dist?) works for me being “local”. And that’s ^ 2022 demand which isn’t exactly the inverse of odds bc private permits vary by day. Could be another good water year!

    Kind of a long story, I'm about 90% sure I'll be on a guided trip in early-mid August.

    It's not a fishing specific float, but I'll be doing a lot of research on the subject between now and then. Although, at first glance it looks pretty straight forward. I'll probably only bring 1 rod, guessing 5wt over 6wt?

    Flows look pretty freakin low on average for that time of year.

    I did the main mid-August, floating through the fires. Had a great time. Water was warm so we caught most of our fish where tributary creeks flowed in.

    The Main Salmon is sick. I'm not much of a fisherman but even at low water the rapids are good, the scenery is beautiful, and the beaches are epic. Do it, enjoy it, and don't wish you were at your desk.

    ^^^ This. The Main is a great summer float and you can actually swim and not freeze your balls off.
