Mile 4-6 on the Middle Fork - Severe debris flows in 2022 blocked the river with logs, debris fans, and a destroyed pack bridge. The river cleared some of this out, and Helfrich Outfitters removed the bridge from the river in September, but conditions were still poor at the end of the 2022 boating season. High water in 2023 will begin to rearrange things, but it will be some time before conditions stabilize. Check with the Forest Service for current information before launching!


Bonus: If the map gets wet, don't worry! It can stay wet without damage. The pages usually won't stick but you may need to air dry each page or wipe with a dry rag. You can write on dry plastic pages with an indelible marker. Entire guidebook is waterproof and tear resistant but not indestructible.
