Randy (or anyone else interested in this thread),
My wife and I were planning on R2'ing the Selway right after permit season ends (August 1st). But watching the level drop, it may be lower than we would want to do even in a paddle raft. One option would be to packraft it instead (we will be packrafting on the Flathead system just prior to that). Or, we might go elsewhere (N. Fk. Clearwater, lower Main Salmon, or even the M. Fk. ......if we can snag a permit.....). We will have a 12' round raft set-up for paddle-rafting or rowing and Packrafts, with gear for multi-day trips.
We leave tomorrow (Monday) and, after the afternoon of the 18th, will be out of touch for a week or so while we are on the S. Fk. Flathead, but a PM would eventually find me.
