4 June 2013 river conditions

Mid-winter snowpack in the Salmon River basin was above average, but the rest of the winter and spring was dry. By late May the snowpack was less than 50%.  The Middle Fork of the Salmon peaked about the 14th of May, at about 6 1/2 feet, and has been dropping continuously, now in the mid-threes.  Streams are clear, and at fishable levels–unusual for early June.  It’s a beautiful time of year–hills green, balsamroot still splashing the slopes with yellow, blue lupine mixed in, comfortable temperatures.
