October Float Fest


Recommended Posts

Ahhhh, it is time again for the second annual October Float Fest. Our previous float trips have always been on a Saturday. And we can do that this time also if you guy's want to. This year though, Sunday, October 10, equates to 10-10-10. It is a once in a life time offer. I think it would be pretty dang neat to do this. But I am not opposed to doing this on Saturday the 9th.

What say you??

Maybe...I might be able to swing down there that day. I will let you know as it gets closer.

Any day of the week is fine by me, but the 10-10-10 sounds like a great idea.

Any ideas on where this float will take place?

There's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking stupid.

Good idea Chief. I can do 10-10-10.

Any ideas on a stretch of stream to float?

If fishing was easy it would be called catching.

Now that was just what the doctor ordered. We need some more of that around here.

Well, I am thinking about doing one of two floats or combining them into one. Our first Fall Float was from Cherry Corner to Allen Bridge. Which is about the same length as the Spring Float was, about 2+ miles. I know that doesn't sound like a very long float but, we spent 4 hrs on the water on the spring float and I think it worked out just right.

Or we could float Cherry Corner to Lime Kiln, which would be in the neighborhood of 4+ miles. But I think that will cut us short on our feast at the end of the float.

Or we could do the Allen Bridge to Lime Kiln just like the Spring Float. If we do this one, we have a table at the take out we can use.

Here are my thoughts on why I like the Allen Bridge to Lime Kiln float:

1. Ample free parking on Conservation land. I have lots of places to float but, parking for a group of people becomes a real issue

2. It is a realitive short float. That gives time to float and then have a final get together before everyone has to leave.

3. Being on a Sunday this time, time will be of the essence so that everyone can get home that evening.

4. This particular stretch is an easy float without obstacles or portages.

5. Concrete boat ramps at each access for easy put in and take out.

6. Easy to find for out of towners.

Shoal creek sounds good, but is there anything in between Neosho and Mt. Home so we don't have to drive so far?
