The time frame you are looking at I would put in at lower branch and take out at wahalla. That section will be far less crowded, esp if you put in early and get ahead of the guides. Very diverse water in that section, deep holes, gravel, riffles. You will get some funny looks but a big fat night crawler in the dark water behind redds will produce some nice browns and maybe a early run steelhead. Have fun, salmon season will be in full effect. A lot of good fun and the occasional roll your eyes and keep rowing!!
