A group of us plan on paddling the Salmon and Moira this coming weekend, and with the coming rain on friday night it looks like a challenging trip. Has anyone been on either rivers lately for any updates ?
thanx in advance

I had been planning to run the Salmon this week also. Decided against it because on the 17th the satellite image showed a lot of ice still left in the area.

There was a partially clear view of the area yesterday, still some ice around so it's possible the lake at the start (Puzzle Lake Conservation Area) might still be frozen over.

The other factor is the Salmon is currently stable at 42 cms, which is above last year's peak. Most everything is going to be washed out and the little canyon may be a complete walk.

I'm hoping for better next weekend.

They ran it last week at Mackfest and it was smoking!!!
And it is higher now.
They had to walk on the ice on the lake to get in last week, but Imagine that ice is really sketchy if it is still there.
Couple of movies on Facebook
Remember this was the lower level 2 weeks ago

We just got back, Salmon was moving fast, we ran everything except the gorge , it was crazy high. Looked at the Moira this morning and it was at flood, also crazy high.........too high for us. I'm sure most of the eddies were washed out preventing any safe place to swim in case of a dump. many trees along shoreline under water, we walked away, next time :)

Was the ice all gone at the start?
