Salmon River Access

Salmon River Access Threatened

Spring paddlers need to be aware that the traditional put-in to the Salmon River has a new owner who has denied access to paddlers.

 

The only public paddlers' access (via Gull Creek) to Sheffield Lake rather than the using the previous putin on the sideroad with the parking fee. It is in good shape, with adequate parking on both sides of the new bridge on CR#15.

At the take out before the low bridge, please respect the 'No Parking' signs and refrain from parking on private property. In particular please do not park in front of the house on river left. Please pick up your litter and ask those with you to do the same.
