S. Fork of Snake in Idaho reccomendations

Floating the S. Fork of the Snake River in Idaho sometime between the 19th-23rd of this month. We can probably only do a full day float. May break it up into two day float pulling the boat out and car camping nearby. I am taking my 16'x 25" JPW cat with my dad (67) and kids (24 and 13). We will be fly fishing.

I was wondering.....

1- Upper section below dam or Canyon section best for fishing?

2- How long does it take to float Conant to Byington while fishing? Is that too big of a bite for one day?

3- Would anyone reccomend floating Conant to Fulmer on first day and then Fulmer to Byington on second day?

4-Probably too much to hope for but is there anywhere to car camp near Fulmer?

5- Who runs shuttles nearby?

Thanks in advance for the all the great info. This is the kids first trip to the Rockies from NC and the Buzzards really chipped in on this trip and have really come through for us. We surely do appreciate it!

Will be up there floating and fishing from the 18-21st. This is the second year I've been on this stretch.
Here is a good site to view the camps on the river Snake River - Palisade Dam to Lorenzo (South Fork) - River Brain
You can definitely pull off and car camp

Last time we floated the canyon in 3 days 2 nights but we put on late the first day. It can definitely be done in 2 days but I guess it also depends on how many fish you catch and how much you row. Also floated the top section from the dam down. All sections fish great.

I believe fulmer is a place where you can camp with the car
