If it was YOUR group there'd probably be 1 opioid overdose, 3 that are homesick and upset about phone service, 1 taken to the nearest ER to remove a Hotwheel from his rectum, and 3 not eating with the

Actually we have thinned the herd from the early years.  When a guy only gets once a year from his wife and he sits down at the campfire with an 18 pack and a bottle crown...Lookout!   

To each their own, but spending a day figuring out the bite on one river, then moving to a whole different river for the next day seems more like a sight-seeing trip than a fishing trip. You'll g

Once a year?  Once????  Sad emoji is not enough.

I've never been that impressed with the NFOW.  My buddies always talked me into stopping there on the way to the White and Norfork.

The cool thing about NFOW is that all the truly good spots are accessable by land and a short hike.  No real need to float it IMO.

That is the dumbest statement you have ever uttered FW. NFoW is 95% private land. Guess you have not fished it much. 

Tell you what....You float whatever stretch you want, and I'll run spots in my truck.  At the end of the day I'll meet you at Dawt and we'll compare pics.     Looser buys beers, fried pickles, and Rubens.     

Pick a date that's 1000cfs or less.    😊

I don't think I have to worry about the guys getting rowdy. Most of us are retired old farts just wanting to fish a different stream. This trip is just an exploratory venture to see if they want to start a yearly thing or not. I may take the suggest that we split the trip into separate groups and just do one river at a time.  As to the Number of guys going, I really do not have a head count, eight was just a number that came to mind. Sunburst sounds good for a start. Where can we access the Blue Ribbon area by foot, keep in mind some of these guys have physical limitation. Thanks for the input.

There's some great water at sunburst, upstream and downstream. I caught a 26" brown trout there one cold November morning a few years ago.  There are some trails at Patrick bridge and Blair bridge park as well.  Other than that, access is extremely limited.  You could also pay a fee to access the river at River of life farm.  I'd rent a canoe and float and hit the best spots.  It's a finicky river, but can be spectacular when it's on and downright difficult when it's not.

I'm going with Gavin on this one. There are some good spots accessible by land but I like the ones that aren't.
