The shuttle is the worst part of boating. There is no one size solution. I depends on what stretch of what river, what equipment and who is going with. Many times it's worth paying for a shuttle other times it's better to work out the shuttle with you group. Not to worry a solution will almost always present it's self. I've been know to hitchhike and to pick up hitchers on the upper C. You should also give Shashone a try it's close and pretty much fun. The Eagle is running pretty low. Too low for me.
