The whitewater forecast for the Salmon River looks very promising this year. Snow pack for the Salmon Basin is 90% of normal, which means we can expect a great year for whitewater rafting. In other words, we expect a less dangerous early high water situation with a better than average runoff over the entire summer months. It could be one of the best whitewater years ever!
