Beginning at the small hamlet of Forks of Salmon, the first four miles of the Cal Salmon is characterized by gentle green waters interrupted by several beginner level class II+ pool drop rapids.
This stretch of river allows visitors to enjoy the scenery of the area and warm up to the challenges downstream. A perfect day stretch for beginners and intermediates alike, it is the training ground for world class kayaking schools readying their students for more advanced whitewater thrills.
