I would plus one for Deso. If you're willing to do a low water run (any time after early July), the bugs are usually not to bad after the first day, and historically there are cancellations that show up as soon as the water starts to drop.

You might look at a lower water run of cataract as well. I know it's more technical than you originally expressed interest in; however, it's not as hairy once the water drops, (still some solid class IV). It is hot as fire down there in the summer, but the water is pleasant and the scenery is amazing, and you can always get a permit (self issue online).
