Buffalo Point to Rush

Recommended Posts

I've only floated the upper Buffalo, although we have long toyed with the idea of doing the Lower Wilderness over a three-day weekend. We are considering taking a shorter trip during the second week in May - from Buffalo Point to Rush. I will have clients with me who are considering moving to the area. Can anyone recommend a reputable livery who will service that stretch? We'll be driving out of Rushing, AR (about 20 miles South of Mountain View) and trying to crap this float into a half day. I'd be open to suggestions or livery referrals on any of the tributaries of Greer's Ferry, but I thought for scenery nothing would beat the Buffalo. Like I said, though, I've never floated the lower portion.

Thanks,

Tim

heres a few >>> dillards 800-423-8731...>>wild bills 800-544-8657 >>>>and riley's station outfitters 888-533-2151 all good folks and i have used them all!! first two are out of yellville and the station is out of mt. home but unless we get some rain soon it will be along trip draging over the rocks! the river needs to be at 3.0 for a minimum and 5.0 to 9.0 is the best !! by that i mean the water does all the work B) hope this helps you out!

Thanks, Bobber!

I had done a little more research on the net and come across Wild Bill's - I think that's who we'll go through. Appreciate the advice on the water levels. I don't think these guys will be doing much fishing. I think they'll be more in to the experience and the scenery. You wouldn't have any other river suggestions between Mountain View and Greer's Ferry, would you? I was considering going below the lake on the Little Red, but was trying to find something a little more remote. I'm assuming that it is a lot like the White below Bull Shoals in terms of traffic. Is that correct?
