I think its more about weight. Call and ask how much weight they are allowing on the plane. I know you can get 3 kayakers and all their gear in a 206 no problem. Good Luck.

Bound is boatless man

We fly in to Indian Creek most every year for a Sept. low water trip. We fly out of Salmon and always use McCall Air (used to be Salmon Air?). Great folks, no complaints. Since we are flying in all our gear, peeps, and a dog, we use two Islanders. We used to be able to do it with one Islander and one 206, but they stopped using the belly pod on the 206 and we just couldn't quite squeeze it all in. I seem to recall my buddy saying that it was cheaper from Challis? But it's easier for us from Salmon. Have fun. It's a great trip.

The info we got from the air charter companies sounds like we'll be fine with a single 206 flight: maximum of about 1000 pounds, and a volume that can hold 3 or 4 large coolers or dry boxes, a couple of rolled IK's, and miscellaneous smaller stuff. We're basing the size of the trip around what can come in on a single flight. Looking forward to it! Latest I've been on the Middle Fork was mid-August at 2.1 feet. We have a late July Selway trip which be all indications will be pretty low water, so that should be a good tune up for a low water Middle Fork!

A late July Selway trip will be more of a challenge than a late August Middle Fork trip.
Real adventure is only one bad decision away.

For those who have done both, What does 2' Mfs correlate to roughly at the Paradise Selway gauge?

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
