Salmon above Vinegar

Anybody want to run up river next week? Never been at this flow so I wouldn’t mind another boat along. Apparently Viking has the skinny water flu.

If the river is low, just have two Rock Stars and bring your lucky charms. :Drink: :Drink:

We ran all the way to just above Vinegar at 4400. Granted I was it my 20 diesel. We are running the Clackamas over here in less water.

Carey falls and vinegar are the boney ones at that flow.

The guy with the blue 24 Custom weld and I about 4-5 years ago did the run. We drove up the road and looked at Carey Falls and then launched at Spring Bar. We ran Carey four or five times and then up river to just below Ludwig. It's the time I had the little 20 aired out at Carey. A new copper colored Custom Weld wrecked at Carey while we watched. Some where on the site are the pic's. When are you Idaho Boys coming west to run our braded rivers. We run at mid to no water to keep our skills up. The last group from HCM came in 2010. This is a invite.

Fantastic three days on the river. Gotta thank Eagle1 for the Rockstar idea, although I should’ve packed some lucky charms too. The river scored one tap in Reed Creek today. Easy little rapid above Lemhi-China Bar, I just guessed wrong on which side to run. No damage, just a light abrasion on the steel. Made it most of the way through Elkhorn, but the squeeze at the top looked a little too tight.

Viking-how is your new mini-van? I understand this can be an exciting time in a creepy old man’s life. You’ll be living by the river in no time.
