ON THE WATER
I have an inflatable raft; fish hunter 360. It's the biggest of the Sevlor rafts. I've been wanting to float the oxbow/dabney drift. I've heard this drift is pretty manageable but I've only floated the upper in the summer not fishing. So basically I'm looking for some advice on what to watch for, advice, etc. My other thought is from dabney to L&C but I would much rather float from oxbow. Thanks OFFr's for your thoughts.

Also any thoughts on floating the Clack or anywhere would be appreciated. I'm anxious to get on the water

Is it a 2 man raft? Fishing in the cold, alone, and without wet-suit and life-vest has cost several
folks their lives this year.

You could NOT pay me enough, to try a Sevlor (or any other raft), in a raging and ice cold winter river.

Aren't those Fish Hunters designed for lakes/ponds? Fishing from the bank would probably be a lot better, at least that way you'd likely live through the day.
