Did the Snake over Labor Day weekend a few years ago. The first day we did roughly this stretch: (American Whitewater - 6 - Astoria Bridge to West Table, Snake Wyoming, US
) and as I recall it was all flatwater (AW calls it class I, too). It's along the highway and it's pretty, but I'm sure not as scenic as the stretches in the Park. We don't fish but I recall seeing a lot of people fishing. If memory serves, we used a put-in right near Fall Creek Rd on US 89/26 and took out at a small river access just after the river turns to the west. There is another river access just a little further down river (where the marker on the AW map is?) that we never used but I think is used by all the commercial outfitters for the Alpine Canyon whitewater stretch.
