I made the trip from Benton to Kipp Bridge about 1999. After the spring floods are over the river is not that silty. We saw no rattlesnakes, but did not look for them. There is little habitat to support bears. Lots of other wildlife especially bighorn sheep on the lower part of the river below the Judith.
Bring an old sheet for tail winds. A canoemaran is a site to behold with twin roostertails, and all you have to do is steer.
We did our own shuttle, but it took 8 hours. Met some great people out there is the Breaks country.
