June on Hells Canyon varies greatly depending on the water flow level. If your interest is fishing, flows below 30K usually have better fishing. Also above 35K several rapids are washed out. I've only floated it to Pittsburgh landing, so can't tell you about anything lower than there. Great place for Sturgeon fishing, spend a night at Kirkwood for a small dose of civilization. It's my favorite river for big water.

I'm hoping to hop on a friends permit on Aug 16th for this run. I'm letting them join us on the Lower Rogue one month prior... Good trade, but would be looking for some more advanced stuff after getting used to the new boat.
