Lower Salmon VC to HC or HC to HB?
We are going to do the lower salmon next Saturday, July 16th. Flows look like they are going to stay pretty high. Our plans are Hammer Creek to Heller Bar. Keeping Vinegar Creek to Hammer Creek as a back up. Read the earlier thread about the lower salmon in late July. Pretty sure the flows will stay above 20,000, or close. Never boated anything on the salmon, and have a few young kids. I realize Hammer Creek to Heller Bar is the preferred run. Would we still have a good time doing Vinegar Creek to Hammer Creek? Good camp spots away from traffic noise etc.?? We've run the Payette's a bunch of times, and have done all of the Southern Utah rivers including westwater a couple of times. The highest being almost 9000. We do have some experience.
Comments are appreciated. I have a whistle and turkey leg, and know how to use them!
