Fly2Fish asked for some photos of me fishing, so I included a few below:
Kelly: Thanks, I feel the same way, the Green is a great place to fish, but it is a long drive for me also.
RayMO: Thanks, I totally agree! I had a great time on my birthday fishing with my son and getting to teach him a little about rowing a drift boat.
JP: I'm no expert rower that is for sure, but I know the basics and made it down Red Creek Rapids!
Fysh: I sent you an email!
Ard: Sounds cool! While we were fishing I spotted a gal in a pontoon followed by a guy in a pontoon tied to a third one holding their camping gear. I asked them if they planned on running the rapids or portaging around. She said that they would run the rapids, it was the best part of the trip. At the takeout they were there loading up and she asked me how I did and I told her I bumped into a couple rocks and spun off another but made it down fine. I didn't follow the guides advice on the setup at the top, lesson learned! She had a good laugh!
I'm itching to do that trip again but this time camping along the river, the camp sites they have constructed are really nice sites with fire pits, a grate, a picnic table and all but one has shade, but they require you to bring along a sealable porta-potty.
