Hammer Creek To Heller Bar (Lower Salmon)
The Lower Salmon Canyon is a great multi-day trip. The very beginning of this section can be run as a day run (just outside of Riggins). Most will choose to take 5 or 6 days and take out at Heller Bar on the Snake river. This can be run in three days by either packing along a motor to run "snake lake" after the confluence to heller, or arrange a jet back from the confluence to Pittsburg and take out there. Recommended flow is under 20K (usually after June).
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Salmon River are between a bare minimum of 3,000cfs and a high of 20,000cfs.
