New raft!

HombreLibro85
My buddy and I just got a 14' STAR raft and have taken it out a few times on the Clackamas, from Feldheimer to Barton and Barton to Carver. We feel comfortable enough to seek out new stretches to float and have the wilson in mind. I know a lot of the bank spots and I am ready to get in the boat now! Any suggestions of places to launch and end a trip for novice rowers to try would be helpful)


Also, has anyone had weird luck catching pikeminnow and carp floating from feldheimer to barton?

Mills Bridge to Sollie Smith would be just so easy on the Wilson. While you're there and getting comfortable with that easy float, ask other boaters about the Siskeyville put in (slide). It could also be a good option once levels get up.

The raft is the greatest thing ever! Been using it to float the Clackamas (Feldheimer to barton and barton to carver). Unfortunately we found and air leak and had to patch it so we were off the water for a couple weekends, but the leak is fixed and probably gonna take it out again soon considering all this rain we got this week! No trailer so deflating and inflating at load and unload area has been the move. the frame straps easily to my camper rails
