I'm wanting to link up with someone who has experience with running a pump in the lower river. In the tribs, my experience is limited to rowing drift boats. I've never ran the boat for what it was truly intended for and feel this season is the chance to learn. I threw this out on the main forum last year but didn't have a chance to connect with any members. Is anyone interested out there? I'd pick up the costs and would enjoy someone's company and knowledge. Thanks and be in touch if you're interested!
What is your definition of "lower" river? Are you talking from the Barrier Dam down, or Castle Rock down? I have spent a lot of time from Blue Creek to Toledo and some between the Barrier Dam and Blue Creek. For the most part, that area is not a high skill area unless it is at summer level like now. There are a few places that you need to make sure you are in the chute or isn't enough water. Never been below Castle Rock, I hear it can get a little sketchy with the sand bars.
