Biggest Snow Pack on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River Since 1974!
The latest reports from Idaho are predicting amazing flows on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River throughout the 2011 season. The Salmon River basin has a snow pack of 140% of average, which hasn't been seen in over 35 years. The Middle Fork of the Salmon River's Facebook Page has come alive with predictions and wagers for the peak flow, and outfitters are preparing for higher then normal flows this summer!
Unlike other seasons that had the Middle Fork flows dwindling by the end of the summer, we expect to see great flows well into August. If you haven't booked your Middle Fork trip yet, look to late July and August, when the weather will be hot and sunny and the river will likely have plenty of water to raft the full 100 miles.
ECHO has availability on some great dates like the Kids Trip July 31-August 5 with a reduced rate of $1445 for ages 7-17 or the August 16-21 trip which should have amazing fishing as the trout fatten up for fall.
