Combined lower salmon Hells canyon

So if I fail to pick up a main salmon permit I have an idea... We have two hells canyon permits to use right now one mid july one late august... I was thinking of doing the lower salmon from Hammer creek down to the snake river... From there we would take a jet back to hells canyon dam to start our permitted trip from the dam down to pittsburg landing... We would only have to shuttle our vehicles 17 miles from hammer creek to pittsburg landing.. people always say that hells canyon is two short and worry about the last day of rowing or takeing a motor on the lower part of the snake... this takes care of both of these... has anyone done this... five days on the main and three on hells?

More common I hear of people running from Hells to Pittsburgh then driving over to Hammer and running to Heller. But that does require two shuttles at least for the vehicles needed to get you from Pitt to Hammer.

When you jetboat shuttle you have to breakdown your rigs so you would be rigging, running the lower then derigging/rigging and running Hells. And with no services at Hell's Canyon Dam there is not even the intensive of a milkshake and fries. The jetboat shuttle is quite a bit of coin as well.

I think the company we used for our jet boat shuttle last year was Hells Canyon Adventure, maybe? Something like that. No issues at all and the boat was cool. I'd never been on one before. I think it was 40' long. So different than a raft. Loud.
