Pontoon float fishing

Been thinking about hitting the Yak in my pontton. I've never fished with my pontoon on moving water before and would like to know a few things. First, is the river technical in terms of rowing? I've white water rafted the white salmon before but that is the extent of my experience as far as paddling technique. Can a beginner float this river with relatively little experience? Also, what things should I bring along for the float aside from fly rod and flies and a PFD. Should I equip my toon with an anchor or a wind sock? Should I somehow attach my flyrod to me in case it falls in the water? Any recommendations on shuttle services?

Hey just a word - I wouldn't put it at Ringer if it's your first time. If you do, just make sure you know what you're doing on the oars first so you can haul out to the middle of the river before that turn comes up.

I speak from my own experience of stupidity - put my wife on a pontoon there a couple months ago and before I could count to 10 she was in the logs and sticks on the river right side.

-10 points for husband Jesse.
