Default SE Wyoming Float Trip

A friend of mine named John and I hit the upper North Platte yesterday in his brand new Clacka. I couldn't get my regular fishing buddies to come hit the water so it was just the two of us trading turns on the oars, it was an absolute fantastic day on the water. I think I'm becoming a Clacka fan, that boat rows like a dream and I really like how stable it is when the other person is slightly off center, a real dream to row. The river and fishing gods were very kind to us yesterday. Hope you enjoy the photos:

Nice fish, nice photos. Thanks for posting. We're hosting friends for a few days. Non-fishers. I'm on my best behavior.

The N. Platte is on my short list of rivers-not-fished yet. With all that I've read and your enthusiastic endorsement, not to mention the evidence, I'd better move it closer to the top of that list. As I understand it the river is best from a drift boat. Is that correct?

Hi Larry,

That was a nice day. I bet your friends are kicking themselves for not going along.

Frank: I'll bet they will when they see the fish we caught. Pete (my Usual fishing partner) has a new girl friend and my son had to work.

Nice day on the river Larry.
Bring enough of that good "fish karma" for all of us when we hit Green in a couple weeks.
