    Jet boats are not cheap. If you float in from corn creek, it will take a couple of days to get down to mackay bar. getting out would be easy from mackay bar to vinegar creek or carey creek, but then you have the cost of shuttling you vehicle. the main is not a cheap shuttle. Flying is the cheapest route unless you have lots of time to float, but when floating you have limited amount of time on the river. But I only really know about permit season on the main, but permited rivers are permitted rivers and there is a lot of logistics to deal with.

    I looked into doing this last year. As some of the guys have mentioned, you need a permit to be on the river and if you float it yourself, the longest the permit allows you to be in there is 7 days. Not enough time to float, hunt and get out of there.

    recreation.gov is where you get permits for the river system. It should be a piece of cake to get a permit at that time of year. But it would be one very cold run. fair amount of easy rapids and a couple of difficult rapids to contend with. The folks at buckskins bills live in the canyon year round. Great summer time run, the ice shouldn't be to bad, the middle fork ices over.

    I would still like to do it. But I need some friends with "true grit" lol.

    From what I read we would have been lucky to have killed anything. It is my understanding that its not what it used to be.
    Let me know when to be ready bud!

    The frank is an amazing place. Way more than hunting there. over 2,000,000 acres of wilderness.
    I try to spend a week a year in there. this year was on the middle fork of the salmon. One of the premiere multi day whitewater trips, 102 miles long from the put in at boundary creek to the take out at cache bar. The main salmon is an 80 mile float from corn creek to carey creek.

    Those genetics with the tall back tines are pretty cool in there. My brother has a nice one built like that from 2013.
