Welcome to Buzz, it's a good place to do a lot of research. There are a lot of good people here. When you stated class 4/5, like Andy, my eyes widened. Most of the rivers are on class 6 scale. Main Salmon being a 3/4 class.
Putting together a trip isn't a simple task, too many things to take care of. A lot of us have spreadsheets which help you keep it all organized. If you end up being a TL on your trip, I can share some of the pointers on putting the trip together.
Wish I could make it to Main this year, but it looks like I will be skipping this summer. Have a great time.
