The last scheduled boat patrol by Papoose Fire personnel on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River occured the week of August 19th. Crews monitored fire activity and checked campsites for hazards including rolling debris. Activity on the Papoose Fire is minimal. The fire is smoldering in grass brush and small timber stands in steep rocky inaccessible terrain.
All previous areas closed due to the Papoose Fire are now open. For your safety please be advised that some areas may contain hazards such as: ash and needles on the trail that can make the trail slippery burned out stump holes that make the ground week and unstable unstable dead trees loose rocks and logs that have the potential to roll and flash flooding and mud flows especially in areas without vegetation. Take proper safety precautions such as: checking the weather forecast let someone know where you are and locate your camp away from burned trees. Conditions in a burned forest change constantly. Be alert at all times. For further information regarding these areas call the North Fork Ranger District at 208-865-2700.
