When will the Middle Fork of the Salmon River peak this year?
It's a question that's going to be pretty tough this season with Idaho's abundant snowpack.
The contest has been revived by Robert Lilly of Boise as "purely for the enjoyment of the boating community and those with a love for the Middle Fork of the Salmon River."
You've got to submit the date, time and level when you think the Middle Fork will peak.
The gauge at the Middle Fork Lodge will be used to determine the official reading.
Prizes are being offered and they're pretty good. Idaho River Sports is offering a Yeti cooler. Others are a Silverback Pad from Maravia, "The Outdoor Dutch Oven Cookbook" by Sheila Mills from Rocky Mountain River Tours, a $25 gift certificate from Salmon Air for a flight, the book "River Rescue" by Les Bechdel from Canyons, Inc., and more. Lorali Simmons of River Shuttles has donated a Middle Fork shuttle.

Have fun and have a good river season.
