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.
