I will be visiting relatives in Jackson in mid September and would like to paddle the Snake. Whats the best place to rent gear? Will I have trouble finding a group familiar with the river and willing to allow me to tag along if I just show up at the put-in or take-out?
Go to Rendevous Kayak...just east of the intersection of hwy 89 and 22. its on the left.
Here is their webpage with river beta. There are plenty o folks at the huge put-in parking lot. Easy, fun, playful section of river
