Main Salmon day stretch, anyone?
I'm looking for boaters willing to help a novice. I have access to a 16" NRS cat, and I want to get more river time before all the water goes away. I did just row most of the Main Salmon on a family trip, but with a friend coaching me from the back seat. (I high-sided once, got stalled out below rocks twice, and did the 2nd half of Big Mallard backwards, unintentionally) but no disasters. I was a passenger on the Grand Canyon in 2004, but only got a little oar time. I did most of the big rapids hanging over the front of whichever raft I as in. I've been driving the @%#!! shuttles since 1981, though.
I'd like to try the day stretch of the Main below North Fork and above Cache Bar. Looking at the calendar, I could go on the 11th or 12th, the 14th, 15th or 16th, and am sort of flexible from August 19th through 28th. ( I have a friend coming to visit from Seattle, but I've asked her if she has a good PFD.)
Of course, I'll bring beer and food to share with anyone willing to help.
