Hey guys. As I'm drilling my third pair of cleats into my boots this year, it got me to wondering what's the most treacherous river bottom there is to fish. In my travels, I've had lots of people tell me such-and-such river is "slicker'n'snot", "the slipperiest river there ever was", etc. Here's my five picks, from worst to deadliest: 5) Middle Big Hole 4) Salmon River, New York 3) Clearwater River, ID (the ledges above Lenore!) 2) Any jetty on the Maine coast (ok, not a river. . .) And hands down: 1) The lower Deschutes. So ridiculously slick with coffin-deep, no-see-um channels. What'd I miss?
