Main Salmon Beta
Hey, I have a permit for the Main Salmon for August 1st. I have a couple of specific questions.
If I only have 6 days on the river and two days of driving on either side, which sections can I comfortably run? The section from Corn Creek to Vinegar is 79 miles, which could easily be done in 6 days, but could I potentially add the next section (28 miles) to Riggins? Could I add more?
I've heard that the Salmon runs like a "big water" river, so I'm thinking I could easily make 20 miles a day. Any thoughts on this?
Any recommendations on must see sections? Would I be better off just running the Vinegar stretch and trying to hit the Lochsa for a day run?
