July Float


3wt

Recommended Posts

I'm kicking around the idea of a float on the eleven point on some saturday next month. I've only been on the elevenpoint once and it was over 12 years ago.

Ultimately I'd like to be in the best trout area for maybe a single day without having to rush too much. What float would you guys recommend? Any chance we'd miss the types of crowds that are usually on the current on a summer Saturday?

I was probably going to just do a day float and camp, so if there are worthwhile campgrounds It woudl be nice to know - I don't think the folks I'll be with will want to overnight it on the river.

Thanks

Right now the lower stretches, Turner to Whitten and Whitten to Riverton are fishing the best. The blue ribbon area, Greer to Turner will probably fish well by then. Greer campground, which is forest service and first come first served @ $10/site is nice and has access to the blue ribbon water. On a side note, a Sat in July is going to have heavy traffic if you are trying to fish. It is not as bad as the canoe traffic on the Current, but you will not be alone in a hole very long. Fish early, take a mid day break and then fish late is the best way to avoid others.

I don't mind company, and probably won't fish all that much except in the morning anyway. It's the unending nose to tail canoe train that I can't handle on the current on weekends.

Maybe I'll try to talk everybody into taking a day off and floating on a Friday or Monday.
