Free for sunday!

Hey there Last Cast how's it going? I'm kinda new to the forum, I would be interested in floating the clack. I usually fish from the bank at Mciver and have yet to have the chance to float any rivers.

hey steelseeker I should mention that I am looking for people that have a boat . if you or anyone else would like to have a fun day on the water fishing and or learning a new river let's go. I'd be happy to teach any one how to row as well. if your new we would do Barton instead of mcgiverr. I personally am rowing a ten foot pontoon.

Hey Last Cast... just a few questions for you.... my fiancée and I were talking about floating the Sandy this Sunday in our tandem IK. We're still on the fence right now though...

We've never done the Clack before (we usually run the Sandy), and I see this run is pretty popular. Soggy Sneakers says it's usually run between 800-3000 cfs. It looks like it's running around 4,300 cfs right now, and it's forecast to drop down to 3,500 - 4,000 cfs or so on Sunday. How do you think an IK would handle on this stretch around these flows? Just curious your thoughts...

hey Gordo,

Barton to Carver is a beginer run. Even at this flow it's not bad to learn on if you have someone to follow for the first time.

Mcgiver to Barton is an intermediate run. The first rapid is right at the boat launch, and is a solid classIII that can be ported with ease if necessary. There is also the mine field its not big. Its just fast bonney and sort of technical. Every thing else can be skirted if need be. I've seen a fair number of IK's make these runs. If your experienced I'd call it a splash and gigle run. I'd be happy to show you. Maybe sometime we can meet up and you could introduce me to the Sandy.
