Bringing back an old popular forum for fisherman that like to float the rivers and fish. Rather than asking for a lift or shuttle service let's find others with a (drift boat, pontoon, or kayak) that might want a ride to up or down the river to get their boat or float with others.

I use a Pontoon Boat and prefer to float the Skykomish,

On Sunday 8/5 I'll be floating from Sultan Landing to Ben Howard or Lewis St. Bridge (yes its pretty low right now but I can still manage on the toon ). Let me know if you'd like to join.

Pontoon as in single seater or floating party barges? I have the costco single seater and wanna float a easy river for the 1st 5 or 6 times... Nook has been too silted up......

Eastsider here.
I would love to connect and do a shuttle on the:
Clark Fork (Montana)
St Joe (Idaho)
Rufus Woods. Seaton's Grove to 1st net pens. Big triploids can be had. The put out is at Nespelem Bay which means a backtrack upstream of about 1/2 mile against the current. It is impossible to row against the current some days, so an electric or small gas motor is needed for this one.

I have pontoon (portable, inflatable 'toons w/frame) that can handle up to Class II without issue.
These are all within a 2-3 hour drive from Spokane.
The Yakima would be great too...just don't like the crowds.hahahaha
