Floating the S. Fork of the Snake, Idaho

I am a novice rower but a very experienced fly fisher. I am interested on floating and camping the S. Fork of the Snake in Idaho. I've got a 18 foot dory to use and it will be the first week of August.
Any suggestions on which sections are the best and easiest to float?
Any books or web sites that detail the different sections and possible floats?
Which section is the most scenic?
Anything else I should keep in mind?
How safe is the S. Fork for a novice rower?
Any lodges or cabins in that area that you can recommend?
Many thanks!!!!

I've whitewatered the Snake, but not sure what stretches. I was the cargo hauler for a friends whitewater company. I can't help you much on most of this. I followed my friend's lead. But, I would try looking for on a websearch for "NWRA" or "NorthWest Rafters Association". An old whitewater club that tours around the NW hitting whitewater rivers. May be able to hook you up with when/where to go. I knew alot of guys in the NWRA, I ran with most. Never became a member, since most were involved and I tagged along with my boat. I'd go to the trout section or the worldwide fishing section and ask about lodging and things.

Wish I could help you out more. Haven't run the snake in a decade, so a bit rusty. We did a tour, and did the snake, then the Colorado and a few other rivers. I do believe the Mountaneers still have a publication on whitewater rivers. I do believe my whitewater guide for WA was produced by them. Very indepth and accurate run info on rivers and ratings per water levels.

Sorry, about best I can do for you.
