Floated it Friday in 13' fishing raft, Salida to Vallee Bridge, took all day (8-7) at slow fishing speed, hit some rocks, technical but very doable, had to drag the raft once or twice, no big deal. Biggest deal is fishing thru the heat of the day, protect the fish and your head! Drop in tincup from the left.
you'll hit some rocks, may get stuck on a couple, will drag the raft a couple of times, get dehydrated, catch some fish, get a sunburn....sounds like a good day, I think I'll do it Sat and Sun! Say hi if you see our blue Jack's Plastic with Riverboat Works frame!
big bend to salida is easier, may have to drag a couple of shoals...
