Frank: Thanks, that is the first I had heard of thr third oar requirement on the Green, but I always have a spare oar on the drift boat anyway. I guess I will need to order a spare oar from NFO when the new Rampage gets here.

I fished the A section from shore about ten years ago at a flow of 11,000 CFS. The walking path was about 50% underwater, but that posed no problems, just wade along it in a foot or two of water.

The fishing was EXCELLENT. Apparently the high flows just push the fish tight against the banks. Short line nymphing a size 18 anything under a size 16 anything caught fish.

The high flows kept a lot of angers off the river. No crowds at all.

Chris: Thanks for the insight, I was thinking the walking path would be totally submerged and maybe that is why no crowds, everyone else is thinking the same thing. Might be time to hit the Green!

John: That was great, normally in that area near the dam the water is pretty calm and easy to maneuver a drift boat in, not now!
I bet a drift boat ride down the "A" section would be a thrill not to be forgotten any time soon.

Adding to my prior post, everywhere the walking path went underwater was in totally dead still places. you could trip, fall and go nowhere. It was very safe in my estimation, but then I spent 28 years underwater and respect water a ton.

Stay close to the path and use your head, you'll be fine.

John: Your probably right, that would be the ticket, rent one of those big pontoon style boats with a metal frame from Trout Creek Flies and go for it! I'm thinking those pontoons must be at least two foot in diameter, lots of floatation. Probably would be a blast of a ride down through those rapids.
