South Umpqua float

C
colbypearson
So me and quite a few other forum members have been tossing this idea around and we really think it would be an absolute blast for everyone to take toon's and stuff down some stretches of the South umpqua for smallies! :dance:... it would be a blast and that river is incredible... so lets do it! toss ideas and things around here, regs we should know, places that are off limits, i am thinking an 8 or so hour float would be awesome but i dont know the river that well so im not sure about that, but lets start planning it... im thinking june would be a good month!

i know its been a cold year! i think it would just be a blast for everyone to get into some river smallies... but i dont know the river and where to launch and take out etc... or if there is even long toon-able stretches that would work :D

We will time it for the first couple weeks TT and I did a float last year slide hole to elkton it tokk a good 6-7 hrs so that may work good , have one xtra toon told TR he could use it ,have a third if I get the frame welded and the one toon outer sewn . there is an outside chance I will get my two person pontoon by then too if the overtime comes like I think it will. Just has ta be a weekend for me and I am good to go .
