      Comments about RiverMaps Middle Fork & Main Salmon River 2nd Edition Guide Book:

      Certainly a useful book for the river, worth buying. The only complaint I have is many of the camp descriptions are missing key info and not good at giving you a sense of them, which is important for this type of book.

      Comments about RiverMaps Middle Fork & Main Salmon River 2nd Edition Guide Book:

      The large print and great scale made it easy on my aging eyes. The contour lines and vegetation details were easy to follow. We always knew where we were on the river. Durable when wet. Other guidebooks offer more detailed descriptions, but this one has the best maps.

        Comments about RiverMaps Middle Fork & Main Salmon River 2nd Edition Guide Book:

        Great guide and maps of the Middle Fork and Main Salmon. Large print and map scale so I can use without my reading glasses, which is a major pain to try to mess with in my kayak on the river. Took a real beating and soaking without falling a part or even showing much wear!

        Highly recommended

          Comments about RiverMaps Middle Fork & Main Salmon River 2nd Edition Guide Book:

          Missing some of the campsites like it said marble instead of upper/lower marble camps. If i hadn't known there were two it would have been confusing. All in all, it's a good guide. Bigger scale but less info than the oone my friend had

              First of all, I think these are great river guides but for some reason this guide which I just bought in June 2013 does not have the same paper quality. I have several of these guides; Dinosaur National, Grand Canyon, Selway, Snake but for some reason the Middle Fork of the Salmon/Salmon River guide does not hold up as well as the previous books. Not sure if I got a fluke or if they have changed their print/paper process but I've used these books the same way under the same conditions and the latest book did not hold up.
