    Any body with a pontoon interested in floating the sky or cowlitz this sunday? I have a pontoon boat but have no experience using it on moving water, and am looking for some one to float with who wouldn't mind going with someone of that level.

    Sky is closed until June 7th, right? Andy- I think you need to wait a week if you want to combine floating and fishing.

    The Cowlitz is finally starting to come down to fishable levels again, and one of the only options for this weekend.

    Some other time perhaps Evan. I got this thing six or seven years ago with the intention of floating a lot, but just kept up the old walk and wade routine instead. If you ever want to go I'm down almost any weekend.

    Andy, I frequent the Sky also just like Evan. You are always welcome. Note: however, if you want to catch steelhead it may be wise to avoid me like the plaque.
     
  10. dan is much worse than the plaque. He is more like a plague to productiity.

    I have my downside tho, anytime you go with me dont even think twice about leaving your rain jacket at home

    Daniel, do you have a watercraft or do you wake and wade?

    Andy,

    I'm already planning on going to the Sky on Sunday and floating my pontoon from High Bridge to Sultan. I'd be more than happy to meet up so we could keep an eye on each other.

    Evan put up an awesome video up a few months ago of a couple guys beating the shit out of eachother on the river. People may be so wound up, and low holing might be a bad idea.
