I agree 20 miles is way too long for an overnighter. The most I'll do in a day is 7 miles, but I fish hard & slow. That why I like the Bourbeuse.

I know 20 miles is too long, really. But I'm just not able to find a float with the right distance for a two day trip on the Bourbeuse, except right at the lower end, and I'm not too interested in that area right now. So I'll have to try to make it work. I plan to start right about at dawn on the first day, and not too long after that on day 2 which will hopefully help mitigate the extra distance. I had hoped yesterday's rain would get the river pushing a bit more water, which might have helped the cause. But no such luck.

Still, the gauge said about 90 cfs at Union, and compared to some of the times I've floated that river in the summer when it was all the way down in the 30s and 40s, that's still plenty of water.
