SF Salmon River Packrafting/IK TR

Two of us paddled the SF Salmon recently in a packraft and IK. Flows were around 2.5 feet on the SF gauge (175 cfs) with the EF Salmon and the Sesach river adding another 375 cfs for a total flow somewhere around 550 cfs. It was a fantastic level to float the river with every rapid except Elk and Fa...

Re: Colorado Packrafting Extravaganza

Hey Mike, first let me say that I follow Big Wheel Building and have gleamed more ideas and used your beta on more trips (Chetco, Elwah, WF Bruneau, etc.), than any other source. So thank you for taking the time to post your trips up. We hiked from the Rainbow TH to the hot springs and scouted the W...

Re: S. Fork Shuttle???

Hilarious, I would never call you an asshole! Looks like my packrafting is over for the season, but I was able to get in a Colorado Extravaganza which I posted over in the Colorado section. Have fun in the Bob, and sorry your Frank trip fell through. That place is truly one of my favorite, but I was...

Colorado Packrafting Extravaganza

Recently I joined a couple of friends from Arizona and Utah on a week’s long packrafting extravaganza of Colorado whitewater. The tour included the Piedra, EF & WF San Juan, Mesa section of the San Juan, Arkansas, Roaring Fork, Crystal, Gore Creek and the Eagle river. With so much incredible whitewa...

Re: S. Fork Shuttle???

Give Tommy at 4 River Shuttles a call. 406.370.5845. He did my SF Flathead shuttle a couple of years ago. As Hellcat mentioned, it's not cheap, but it's a hellva shuttle! Or, reach out to Hellcat as he is the SF savant and knows all the shortcut routes that would eliminate a prolonged and expensive ...

Re: Partners Request - CO & UT

Sweet trip, Hellcat. Clearly you are a much more capable backcountry guy then I am. I took the easy way through the Bob and floated most of it ;-). Coincidentally, I will be in Montana in late June and would be interested in speaking with you about possible trips. Hit me at coloradoclimber97@gmail t...

Partners Request - CO & UT

It’s looking like I’m going to be burden this year with an inordinate amount of free time. Not wanting to squander this opportunity, I would like to be on the water more (if there is any this year) and am looking for partners to paddle with.....and possibly plan a couple of overnight trips as well. ...

Re: SF Flathead River TR - 6/17 thru 6/24/17

Hey Magic, more than happy to divulge. I hiked the North side trail up the White River to the confluence of the NF and SF, at which point I crossed the river (boat assisted), dropped my boat gear and continued up Haystack Mt to the Chinese wall. It took me 2 1/2 hours to hike the 6 miles up to the f...

SF Flathead River TR - 6/17 thru 6/24/17

Just got off the Flathead and thought I would give a quick conditions report for everyone. I went in from the Lodgepole TH over Young's Pass and down to Babcock Creek were I put on and started floating. The trail had been cleared to the Jenny Creek / Young's confluence and was in good shape. The res...

Re: San Rafael River This Weekend - Partner Request

Yep, me and the swamp rat (dog) floated it Saturday and Sunday. Flows were perfect, we never dragged once, even with over 350 pounds of dog, gear and myself in the packraft. The only downside was everybody else and their brother had the same idea and the river was crowded. All good folks though. Goo...

Re: Escalante

Hey Jay, I would love to do the Escalante again. I solo'd it last year at 20 cfs and had blast. Any interest in doing some canyoning while we are down there?

Anyone interested in paddling the SF of the Flathead this summer? Looking for interested people, or would love to join a group if you have room for one more. I would like to go in over Young's Pass via Lodgepole Creek TH and hike down Young's Creek to the first spot that looks floatable. I'm also op...

Re: Trip Guide to South Fork of the Flathead

Hey Ben, thanks for the update. I have a six day solo trip planned from 7/5 thru 7/10 following your exact path. Any other suggestions, recommendations or tips would be appreciated.

Anybody else want to join me? Looking to avoid the very expensive shuttle.
