Secesh To Main (The Canyon)
The South Fork of the Salmon is one of the best non-permitted multi-day trips in the country. At late summer flows (around 3' on the Krassel Gauge), it offers mostly a class III-IV experience with several solid class IV rapids. Above 4', it becomes a committing class V experience where swimming could be disastrous. Locals will run the stretch as high as it gets (often 7'+), but at these flows a guide is highly recommended. With scenery reminiscent of the Middle Fork of the Salmon, this run has it all.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Salmon River, South Fork are between a bare minimum of cfs and a high of cfs.
