Re: Lewiston to Brownlee... Help anyone ?
I see all kinds of boats out there from 8'- 30'. It can get windy and rough so a boat with some freeboard is a good idea. While you don't usually have to go very far there is a lot of reservoir to explore, 52 miles from end to end. 10 to 15 gallons of gas capacity is nice to have. Bass boats, pontoons, run-abouts ,they all work. In the spring working the shore with an electric is a good way to get your fish. As far as when to come this year June will probably be a safe bet, maybe late May. The corp of engineers has yet to start filling the resvervoir so it's a guess when we will have stable water temps and levels. Cats get more active in June & July. If you're camping Woodhead Park on the Idaho side is a nice park. For motels Richland and Halfway on the Oregon side would give you access to the Powder River Arm. For camping on or near the Powder Arm Hewitt Park and Eagle Valley RV park give you good access.You will need an Oregon license if you fish the Powder. Give me a call if I can help you more.
