Most of our guests ask for it, or at least about it. Big is a relative term and means nothing without context. A vast majority of our guests get all the whitewater action they need on a typical moderate or low-flow river trip. Even though the Middle Fork has some of the greatest whitewater around, and whitewater is a concern of many during pre-trip planning, when the trip actually takes place, “whitewater” tends to drop in importance in relation to other aspects of the trip, such as natural beauty, fishing, camaraderie, food, everything, etc.
With all that said, it drives the guides and myself nuts annually when we watch our June 5th trip come and go, have wonderful whitewater and traditionally very few or no guests to share it with. June 5th on the Middle Fork is not for everyone, but it is exactly what some of you are looking for. Consistently, June 5th produces the highest water levels of the year. Usually the water tames down quite a bit by the 14th. Obviously, we are talking mother nature and nothing is guaranteed. There also tends to be very few other folks out there that time of year.
Tank tops and shorts were the order of the day on this recent June 5th float trip!!
The past three years on our June 5th trip we’ve had temperatures into the 80’s, awesome weather and water. The perfect combination!
We’ve had a great snow season and there is no reason to believe that we won’t have high water in early June. The other perk to high water is it offers the opportunity to see the entire Middle Fork in less time and for less money.
If you really want a unique whitewater, Middle Fork experience, then you should consider June 5, 2018.
