Welches Run


This is a nice intermediate run that begins in the canyon and runs out to Welches, OR.  For the most part this is class II to III water depending on water levels.  There is no gauge on the Salmon so you'll need to get a visual on the flow and make a call if it's worth floating or not.  Spring runoff is typically the season here.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Salmon River are between a bare minimum of cfs and a high of cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 13296500, the Salmon River Bl Yankee Fork Nr Clayton Id Remember only watercraft are permitted at Welches Run.
