Oregon is known for it's stout, creeky feeling rivers and this wild and scenic portion of the upper salmon river is no exception. The upper section is very remote and requires effort to even get to the putin (see access tab for putin directions). The Salmon River Canyon is committing and not a lot of descents have occurred here. Strong class V skills as well as ropework and self rescue skills are a must here. If you do need to do any portaging on any of the falls you will most likely be doing so with ropes as the canyon is very steep. Weather on the river today will be sunny, with a high near 64. west wind 8 to 13 mph increasing to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. winds could gust as high as 28 mph.
