In addition to what everyone else has said, anything on the Colorado between Gore Canyon and Lake Powell. The more into the desert you go the better the weather will likely be.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

Permit season runs year round. Lottery season through 9/7. Unlimited permits after but you still need one for your trip. MFS requires a permit after lottery season and launches are capped at 7 per day. Lotto season ends 9/3. If MFS is in the cards, Id grab one. More folks are grabbing them in that time frame for hunting in the Church.

MF Salmon or Main

Iv'e done both MFS and Main at that exact time of year. Even a few solo trips. If you have time then do both of them back to back, but it might be hard carrying that much food in an IK from Boundary. I have taken a Mini Max and it works great.

A couple years ago I did a solo trip on the Main Sept 15th or so and I didn't see another person till the last day when a jet boat went by. It was a splendid trip. I even camped at the hotsprings..., which was nice.

Three of us are launching 10/6 on the MFS this year. Not sure if we will fly in or not...all depends on flows and weather. If weather is going to be bad we will just run the Main instead.

But shuttle cost is not cheap for a solo Main trip. Nor is a flight into Indian Creek.

Enjoy. Lots of guidebooks. Rivermaps is probably the best, or at least most used.

Either Ruby/HT or Westwater through Cataract. Classic 10-14 day trip. Moving water in WW, Moab Daily, and Cat, but the rest is flat. Usually can't beat the weather tho...
