Pine Creek section of the Main Salmon
We have a permit to run the Main Salmon next week. With the high water, we are leaving open the option to cancel once we get there. As a backup plan we are thinking we could run the recreational section of the Main up above the MF confluence. I have never run that section before, so I would appreciate any info.
The Main at Shoup is currently running at about 9,800 cfs and it will probably drop some by the time we get there. Does anyone have information on the difficulty of this section at those water levels?
Which rapids need to be scouted?
Which put-in take-out points are recommended?
Where are good places to camp?
Do we need a permit for a private group?
Anything else that we ought to know?
