Motoring Thru Hell

Does anyone have experience with a motor thru the last part of Hell's Canyon on the Snake? I hear it's a 17 mile lake with good head winds. Any info would be much appreciated.

Its about 19 miles after you get to the confluence of the Salmon River to Heller Bar. There are a few rapids but nothing major. We use a 5hp motor and tie two or three rafts together. Takes about 2.5 hours from the confluence. Keep an eye out for jet boats...

or you get a jet boat shuttle back to Pittsburgh Landing and then you have a really sweet short shuttle back to Heller Bar

There's good current to Heller Bar. It's not a lake. The motor boat traffic is substantial, though, at least when I've done it (September and October).
