Floated the Yak last Saturday so now I'm contemplating buying a pontoon boat, mainly for floating the Yak. Mostly, I like rivers and spend a lot of time on the forks of the Snoqualmie. For lakes I've got my float tube which has served me well, but I like rivers. There were a lot of waders on the Yak in many of the good spots. With the water so low, it's easy to cast to the far bank. My question, do you think it's worth getting the pontoon to float the river or will wading work most of the time? When water is up, I can see it opening a lot more fishing spots on the Yak, but enough to deal with the added expense and hassle of transporting a boat? Any advantage on lakes, other than distances covered? What has owning a pontoon done for you?
