Report

Account The South Fork Salmon River with Morgan Giddings, whose father Cal Giddings pioneered the run in 1971. Flows were 3.4' dropping to 3.2' over a trip that was 4 days and 3 nights. Due to a landslide on Highway 95 that prevented the shuttle from getting through, we used a plane to fly back to McCall from the confluence of the South Fork with the Main Salmon.
