Looking at a Lower Salmon trip in Mid to late August --- Have a few questions:
1) Is there any reason to consider Vinegar Creek to Hammer Creek Vs. Hammer Creek to Heller Bar?
2) What are recommendations for length of trip --- can it be done in 5?
3) Should we plan for 2 days to get from confluence to Heller? And are the references to Snake Lake / brutal winds as bad as advertised?
4) Input on best places to camp and recommended mileage splits by day?
Any other input would be greatly appreciated --- just cuz I'm not smart enough to ask the question doesn't mean I don't want the answer
