Recent rains caused the latest Smith River trip to get cancelled. As part of 'PLAN B' we did a two day float down another river. I was lucky enough to get invited to fun float with my friend John along on the trip. The water was high and cloudy, but on the drop and clearing. This river doesn't have a ton of fish, but a reputation for big fish. John and I had never been on it before, but ended up doing okay. We didn't get any of the truly large fish this river is noted for, but the gorgeous scenery of the tight canyon walls and comraderie made up for it.

Salmonflies were coming off, but really weren't on the water. Our best fishing was with large streamers and black/orange stonefly nymphs.
