The gauge listed on this page is for the Little Popo Agie, not the Middle Fork. The best gauge is from NOAA labeled "Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River at Sinks Canyon:" ( https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=riw&gage=lanw4 ) There are four sections of this river that are kayaked/packrafted regularly when flows are adequate, generally May and June for a couple of weeks. 1. The upper Class V section includes hiking up the Falls Trail from Bruce's Campground about 1.5 miles to put in below the falls. 2. Another Class V section can be run from Bruce's Campground, or any of the other campgrounds along the river, to above the Sinks (be certain to take out above the final drop into the Sinks). 3. A lower Class IV-V stretch can be run from the bridge below the Rise of the Sinks (obey posted signage at put-in) to the pink water tank fishing access point approximately 3 miles downstream. Note: Land along the banks of this stretch downstream of the State Park is private without public access, so portaging or scouting along the banks is problematic. 4. A Class II-III stretch can be boated from City Park in Lander to the WYPO Bridge fishing access point approximately 5 miles downstream. Land along this "town run" is also private. The town run has some good play boating, but it is shallow with wood, undercut banks, concrete, debris, and some other hazards that warrant caution.

Wind River Range Creeks Need Your Support (WY)

11/12/2010
Kevin Colburn

The Shoshone National Forest is in the process of revising their Forest Plan.  The Forest covers much of the rugged Wind River Range and portions of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone watershed.  As part of that process USFS staff are selecting which rivers they deem to be eligible for Wild and Scenic River designation. AW is asking for your help and involvement over the next week to provide feedback on this evaluation.
