Salt Creek in Nebraska

Trip Overview

My wife, Patti and I have a favorite 2 to 3 hour trip on the Salt Creek that we've done many times in the last 2 years. We enter a mile west of the Loma Beach Resort on Hwy. 6. You can either go down stream to the Platte River and get out at the Schramm State Fish Hatchery about a 3 hour trip. Or you can paddle up Salt Creek (very slow current) for as far as you want and then drift back to where you entered.

It is very beautiful with trees on either side and wild life all around. This is a unique place because you can put in and take out at the same place so you don't need to have a pick up spot.
