The “Surfin” South Fork of the Salmon!

We just got off our first Cal Salmon trip of the year. We were joined by SOU students who were working on there outdoor skills program and were we in for a surprise! End of April California Salmon trips are generally cool (to cold) with medium to lower water. Instead we got 80 degree days with the water peeking out at 8000 cfs! At that level the main Salmon was fun to look at but not really an option to raft on. So we headed up stream to the rarely run South Fork. Normally this is a class 3-4 run with only a few real rapids, but with so much water running through the canyon it was a blast. Both our safety cataraft and our training boat had pretty substantial surfs!
