We ran from the Buckhorn Creek Bridge down to the Krassel Work Center and enjoyed roadside class II whitewater with the kids. It was a short run but fun. On a subsequent day, some in our group ran from the Buckhorn Creek Bridge down to the Secesh to enjoy the class III that comes at the end. We encountered one piece of wood that was nearly river wide and a couple more pieces that were in play and extended across a good portion of the channel.

The South Fork of the Salmon River in central Idaho is under threat from a massive mining proposal. As many of you know, the South Fork is a magnificent river with an incredibly wide range of whitewater opportunities on numerous stretches, including the East Fork, all the way through a Wilderness multi-day run that takes you to the confluence with the Salmon River at Mackey Bar on the Main Salmon wilderness run. We're collecting stories and photos of the South Fork for use in ours and our partners campaign to raise awareness about the imminent threat that this classic whitewater river faces.

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.
