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.

<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Idaho is proposing a $13 registration fee for non-motorized boats greater than 7 feet in length. Under this registration fee proposal all kayaks and rafts on Idaho waters would be required to have a registration sticker fixed to the bow of each boat greater than 7 feet in length. Stickers would not be transferable between boats. Out of state boaters would be required to comply as well.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
