Disclaimer

1 - Marsh Creek to Boundary Creek

Usual Difficulty III-IV (for normal flows)


River Description

Marsh Creek becomes the Middle Fork Salmon where it joins together with Bear Valley Creek. 

 

Kayakers or other small enough craft can launch at State Highway 21, float down Marsh Creek to where it becomes the Middle Fork Salmon and on to the big raft launching facilities at Boundary Creek.   Permits are required if boaters continue on the Middle Fork below Dagger Falls/ Boundary Creek.   This launch is typically used in the early season when snow blocks access to the Boundary Creek put in.
