    Special consideration to DanielOcean if he has the day off. Rivers low and cold but want to get out anyway. If someone wants a seat in the raft, let me know. I will more than likely huck some gear in a couple spots but primarily it'll be a cast and swing kinda day. Nymph between spots or fish my float and whatever below it. Or, strictly swing away. If no takers, I'll more than likely just go to work.

    Dave,

    That is a very kind offer that I am sorry to say no too. Unfortunately I have to work and only have the weekends off. However, in the future if you ever want to hit the sky again please let me know. Worst case scenario please stop by for a beer. Thanks again.

    Dan

    Floated it today. Ben Howard to Lewis Street Bridge. Brought a dinky wild steelhead to hand on a nymphed bead *gasp*, but that was it for action, despite fishing hard all day long.

    I am considering floating the Sky on Thursday with one other guy. I have never floated that river yet so if anyone has some experience on this river and would want to join us, that would be great!

    It should be noted that you'll only be hitting that rapid if you're launching from High Bridge/Big Eddy. I agree though, nice diagram. I kind of like riding that inside seam of that first rapid though.

    Agree - great diagram. The lower the water gets, the smaller that chute is. Had heart-stopper there earlier this year on a foggy morning when the river was running around 1600. The Clacka took on a little water but made it through.

    Awesome diagram. That is exactly my method for driftin that section. Seen lots of boats take the left-side run down the first chute, right up near the bank, but after getting turned sideways in there last year and just about sh*tting ourselves, I prefer to ride her right down the middle.

    If it's below 2000 CFS though, personally i like to just get out and walk it down that second boulder field.

    A buddy and I will be over on the 27th. We'll probably start floating at High Bridge on down. Hopefully the water stays up enough we can get his wood boat down without breaking it!
