PACKING & GEAR

What to Bring

The Middle Fork of the Salmon has many amazing seasons to enjoy rafting and exploring the canyon and the spring and fall are some of the finest. During the spring and fall months the canyon is quieter and the weather is typically cooler. Spring and fall temperatures can range from below freezing to the 70’s with weather ranging from snow to sunny blue skies.
