I agree with swattie on floating being alright, when I said you shouldnt float it, I meant its pointless to float the J unless it is way above 400 cfs. (with the size raft you said you bought)

I don't see the point in floating an entirely wadable stream that's a few short miles long. I see floating as a way to access more remote or inaccessible runs where you would see few fishermen.

Blueheron,

Unfortunately, I have bad knees, a bummed right ankle that swells easily, and a huge bunion in my left foot. A personal water craft like this is ideal for a person who wants to cover long distances. I'm not interested in stubling around anymore. Also, I mainly bought the craft to target warmwater species. The idea of floating the two above streams came to mind and seems fun.

I'm always surprised at the lack of angler traffic on watercraft in PA. It seems like here people are either fishing or floating, but not both.

The float on the Little J from near Tyrone through Barree Gorge is a blast. It's a FULL day if you include shuttling, stopping to fish certain runs, etc. It's a lot of fun if whether you catch fish or not.

If you're looking for a lazy day and aren't physically fit, you might want to stick to the bass pond.

I would guess that would be a fun day. Floating would not be a good idea during a lower water period, but if the J (or any river or larger stream) is too high to wade but not blown out, a float would be a great way to enjoy a day on the river (if you're careful). There would be few, if any wading fisherman to maneuver around, and you would have the whole river to fish and explore.

Midge,
That is a horse of a different color. I would use any means possible if I had trouble getting to where I wanted to be, including floating, crawling of being carried in. I get the gout and pretty much can't walk much less fish when it flares.
