One-Day Floats in Idaho?

Greetings, I'm looking for some advice in where to float in Idaho. My husband, 2 large dogs, and I cram into a Tomcat Tandem pretty nicely. Class 2 is fine but I don't want my 12 year old dog to swim any class 3. We will be heading through Jackson to the ID Falls area and then up to Salmon. Any advice would be awesome. Thanks!

Look for runs on the Salmon River just above and below Salmon. You should have plenty of options. It's mellow. It's beautiful. And there's access.

Have fun.

There would be a class 2 section starting about halfway between Stanley and Challis. You could go as far as you want and there might be only a few class 2 moves in there. You need to stay on the inside as there are a couple sharper turns but easy to do. Been years and it's flat waterish almost all the way, but I don't remember much at all. Stop at the Bar in Clayton.

More remote feeling than the section between Challis and Salmon but there look to be nice sections in there.

fun, uncrowded float is putting in below LOWER Mesa Falls on the Henry's Fork. It's a long dirt slide at put in but perfect for a small cat if you don't mind dragging. one class 2+ ledge drop and scenic deep canyon float. not very long to confluence take-out at Warm River but if you continue to Ashton you might continue to enjoy good fishing. The falls are impressive, too.
