High Water and Low Water Fly-ins for the Middle Fork of the Salmon River 

Please note that on high water trips on June 2, June 11 and June 20 there is a possibility (low) that the road to the put-in is closed due to too much snow.  The Forest Service does not plow the road.  If this is the case, we will need to fly everyone into Indian Creek which is an additional ~$130/person.  If you are a hard shell kayaker and we need to do this the charge to fly in a kayak is ~$150/boat.  Lastly, every year the river gets too low to float the upper section with guests and so we “deadhead” the rafts down to Indian Creek.  If this is the case, guests will need to fly into Indian Creek which is ~$130/person.  This fly-in usually happens around the Aug 8 departure.

These flights are usually a big highlight of the trip for guests and if this is needed you will still have an amazing experience.  This makes the trip 75 miles long verses 100, so you are rafting 12 miles a day verses 17 miles a day which allows you to hike and explore the canyon more than if you did the trip at low water from the top you would be spending a lot (5-6 hours a day) of time on the rafts.

On the rare occasion there water is low on the Main Salmon we may need to fly guests out at Wilson Bar.  This may occur in mid to late Sept or earlier but is quite rare.  This would be an additional cost of around $200/person.
