Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The lucky folks who got a permit have to confirm them by March 15th. After that they start posting the unconfirmed spots. The permit holders also have until 30 days (if I remember right) before their launch date to cancel. There are usually cancellations available all during the season on the Main Salmon. Our group is rarely lucky on the lottery, so we always pick up a cancellation for the Main.
We have a couple more people who haven't reported in yet, so my fingers, toes, and eyes are crossed.
