Mileage/day on the Main Salmon?

Got an August 27th launch on the Main! I've been on it in May but wanted to get an idea of "comfortable" daily mileage during the late season. I searched and someone said somewhere that less than 20 miles/day is possible but couldn't correlate the season. Assume on the river by noon and off by 5ish...
Any info would be appreciated!

20 is possible if your pushing, but 15 is more realistic and relaxing. That time of year we usually do 6 day trips, 5 days and you have to push and hope for calm conditions. I always plan on 2 days below the South Fork and getting started a bit earlier, not much current and afternoon winds (I have had gusts up to 50 mph in august, not going anywhere if that is the case). Also some of the nicest beach camps are down there.
