lol. Maybe I can make it 31 and 26.

You're nuts for biking that. I went a couple time last year in a buddy's drift boat and I thought it was $10 a piece, but I think he goes through DRC so it probably was $40 or $45. I'm far from rich, but saving all that time and trouble at the end of the day seemed well worth it... especially when you've got a 3 hour drive to cap it off.

Glad you guys caught fish. Otherwise, that sounds like a complete cluster-f! Personally, there is nothing worse than shuttling vehicles. Can't imagine doing it for a party of six. Sheesh

George,

I was thinking of how I should have shot you a PM when I saw a guy that I thought was you on the river, but I am HORRIBLE with recognizing people so I didn't say anything. I had already embarrassed myself twice by talking to random dudes like they were part of our group of seven! You haven't been around here in a while, so it slipped my mind. Keep an eye on your inbox for the next time around.

As you can see, this was kind of a last minute cluster****. Planning was minimal.

Edit: cluster**** passes the filter? I'll self moderate.

We use a guy that charges $30 for the shuttle and he is very reliable.

You guys crack me up with those stories.. This is good stuff. Get a drift boat and pay the shuttle fees, your life (and fishing) will be so much better - trust me!

ss,

I love my pontoon. Things just got a little out of whack. We'll get it right next time. I use the gals at the diner. They move my car and walk the dog. They are very good to me.

Jay-

No hard feelings. I sold the Kayak and bought a Scadden pontoon and have not fished it yet. Probably this weekend. I use Hank as a shuttle driver, it is great to come around that final bend late in the day and see your car there. Even better to see your keys there.

BTW - anyone know how far downstream is fishable in July? I am never there at this time of the season.

BTW2 - Last year putting in at Hale Eddy there was a nice copperhead right on the ramp. Keep your eyes open up there.

GG,

With the current flow, you can probably fish as far down as Stockport but it would have to be on the PA side only and early/late. If they start letting more water out, it stays fishable to Buckingham but wouldn't do it right now.

Which Scadden did you get? We've got 3 guys w/ the Skykomish and one w/ the H2 version. It's comfy and quite handy. It will take a little getting used to. Not as nimble as a yak.

BTW, we put in at Norboard and the fishing was great down to Hale Eddy. The EB, Beaverkill and Main were blown out from heavy rains. The WB was PACKED. Made floating tough. Good luck. We may hit it again in late August. Jump onboard. You're on the hook for beer though. :)

He's not on the hook for beer if he has a nice big trailer!

The Yak was not as nimble as you think. When you are floating down river, spot a target and want to stop you can only put one blade in the water at a time. With oars you can put on the brakes. So I wind up turning around, paddling up river and turning around to position. The first 78 times you do that you do not turn quick enough, or paddle far enough upstream so you are not in position. The fish is still feeding and laughing at you. So you paddle back up higher to get in position. The anchor is a problem also. It is not easy to hold in a river. I made a mount, and it worked awesome, but submarining the stern of the craft is always a consideration.

Then there is fly rod in hands time. I think with the pontoon, and a pair of flippers I will spend a lot more time fishing.

I bought the outcast x5 from Scadden, and no, the chick in the picture had nothing to do with my decision. OK, we are all friends here, actually the chick in the picture had everything to do with my decision....

Flippers are pretty common out west, but everyone around here has told me that they're not a good option for eastern rivers. I may give them a try as well... there are some bigger pools where they'd be nice.

Let's get back to that drift boat, I won't send this screenshot to your lovely missus if that $20/trip cost goes into effect.

Get cracking, I'll mark next weekend free. ;)

I seriously, again, want one of these things. Not the blonde, that just looks like more trouble.
