It may be tough to use that Middle fork of the Salmon River permit this year! Boundary and Indian Creek launch sites are now closed due to wildfires in the canyon.

#KnowBeforeYouGo

‼️🛶‼️ Important Information ‼️🛶‼️

Fires Impacting Access to the upper part of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

Middle Fork Boaters--

High temperatures and red flag conditions are causing extreme fire behavior.

Boundary Fire: The road to the Boundary Creek and Dagger Falls area remains closed until further notice; the fire is active along both sides of the Boundary Creek Road.

The Scarface Fire has burned into the lower Thomas Creek drainage near Middle Fork Lodge and Little Creek Guard Station. Protection actions, such as burnout operations, have begun, and will likely include locations along the river corridor. A Temporary Flight Restriction is in place, which has closed the Thomas Creek Airstrip. Extreme fire behavior, including substantial growth after dark, fueled by wind and drought conditions, has driven the fire down to the river. Due to potential hazards in this area, the Indian Creek boat launch is now closed to launches and will remain so until at least Sept. 15.

Boaters still wanting to use their float permit reservation can fly in downstream of Thomas Creek to begin their Middle Fork float trip. If doing so, boaters must send an email to [email protected] to request permit issuance by email, along with camp assignment changes. Be aware that smoke conditions may affect flights into the area.

If boaters choose to cancel, there will be no penalty as long as the reservation is cancelled in their Recreation.gov account at least a day prior to their launch date. Rollovers are not available for post-season launch dates (September 4th and later).

For fire updates, check InciWeb (https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ - search Boundary and Scarface Fires) and/or the Salmon-Challis National Forest Facebook (@salmonchallisnf) page and Fire Information (https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/scnf/landmanagement/resourcemanagement/?cid=FSEPRD757169) web page.
If you have questions, please call 208-879-4108 for clarification.

Boundary Creek fire update:

NEWS RELEASE: BOUNDARY FIRE UPDATE SEPTEMBER 7, 2021; learn more -> https://bit.ly/3naRkcn

Current Size: 29,771 acres
Completion: 30% (completion speaks to the percentage of objectives completed)

Firefighter and public safety are the number one priority for the Boundary Fire. Yesterday, the fire was active with group torching, short-range spotting, and wind driven runs. The fire was backing and flanking in Blue Moon Creek. In the evening, firefighters conducted a burn-out operation to the north side of the private land in Sulphur Creek. Firefighters observed wind driven runs towards Blue Bunch Mountain up Dagger Creek, impacts to the Boundary Creek Road (#568) continue. Firefighters were able to access the administrative sites at Boundary Creek, firefighters continue to be successful in protecting the values at the administrative site. Crews continue mop up and securing of the fire near Morgan Ranch, fire activity is minimal in this area. Firefighters were able to continue to prepare, hold, and improve point protection measures on the east side of the fire in the Seafoam Bubble area. Fire is established on the northeast side of Greyhound Mountain and on the west side of Rapid River.

Today, firefighters will continue to evaluate the fire’s progression, will hold and improve point protection measures, and monitor growth towards values in and near the fire area including the Sulphur Creek Ranch, Boundary Creek administrative site, Seafoam Guard Station and Lodge, and Josephus Lake Campground to name a few. Mop up and securing the fire’s edge continues at Morgan Ranch. Firefighters continue work on the Boundary Creek Road when it is safe to do so. A point protection strategy is being used to protect values at risk. Values at risk are defined as property, structures, physical improvements, natural and cultural resources, community infrastructure, and economic, environmental, and social values such as the Middle Fork River corridor.

if you're planning a trip on the north fork of the Payette River #BeAware that Cascade Reservoir has a very active cyanobacteria harmful algal bloom happening right now.

#besafe #KnowBeforeYouGo #whitewater #whitewaterkayaking #whitewaterrafting

A health advisory has been issued for Cascade Reservoir due to the presence of a cyanobacteria harmful algal bloom (HAB). DEQ and Central District Health urge the public to use caution and take the following precautions:
⚠️ Avoid exposure to #water experiencing a #HAB. Take extra precautions to ensure children, pets, and livestock are not exposed to the water.
⚠️ Do not consume water with a HAB. Neither boiling nor disinfecting water removes cyanotoxins from water.
⚠️ Consume only the fillet portion of fish exposed to a HAB.
