Middle Fork of the Salmon | July 8 - 12, 2009

Our July 8th Middle Fork was a great week on the river with long time guests Rick and Amie and new friends Lee and Val. The fish were jumping, the weather was great and the water hovered around 3’.

We camped at Dolly Lake, Little Soldier, Johnny Walker, Driftwood, and Cliffside.

We caught and released lots of trout as we boated and saw Big Horn Sheep, eagles, and river otter along the way.

On Canyon Appreciation Day we stopped at Waterfall Creek, Veil Falls, and Earl Parrott’s cabin. On the same day we had a memorable rescue of another company’s loose inflatable kayak right below Tumblecreek.

On the last night we had a wine tasting and sampled several delicious varietals. A special guest stopped by our last night camp at Cliffside and entertained us all around the fire.

IRJ guides were Tom Tremain, Skip Volpert and Bob Volpert.

Thanks for joining us on the Middle Fork and we look forward to seeing you back on the river!
