Thanks for the heads up BushBasher. Was planning on paddling with the bikes on board the canoe September 20 something during the week but am hesitant now. I read that the river was supposed to be shut down sometime soon to jet boat traffic that is damaging salmon habitat but obviously that hasn't happened. Kind of surprised the river is still overflowing the pools too.
I'd think by mid Sept it would be all good.. if not now.
If you want the place to yourself I'd definitely go during the week. There was no one there Thurs / Fri but the weekend was a completely different story.
