    Would anyone of "sound body and mind" know or (recommend)if you can take a canoe down the Stilly...lets say put in 1 or two above Oso? :DUNNO

    Some would argue if I am of sound mind.

    I don't see any reason why you could not. The river is low and you might brush bottom in a place or two.

    I haven't been to the N. Fork of the Stilly yet, but if it's anything like the S. fork, you will definitely hit bottom a few times. I was fishing the S. fork this past weekend, and saw a kayaker get stuck a few times where I was fishing.

    Yes, you will hit bottom in a few places. I've done it with my pontoon boat and there's really no difficult water.

    If you put in as high up as the Whitman Road bridge, there's quite a rock garden in the first sharp bend (about a quarter mile downstream), aside from that there are quite a few shallow places where you may want to walk it. No fishing from floating devices above Cicero bridge.
