Bring a fly rod. Unreal fishing on the MFS. Almost unfair.
Thanks Flaco. I'm pretty used to the late summer NW runs with a lot of exposed rock and spots with no clean obvious channel. The leopard tubes are 26.5 and i've got a few extra feet of waterline as well as few inches diam compared to the jag. So based on this i might decide to bring a drop bag instead of the drybox and leave a pelican cube at home.

I'm gonna make sure my tubes are a bit underinflated etc. i've got a 72" frame so not a lot wider than your boat. I ran the middle section of the owyhee at about 900 cfs so i understand the concept of tight. As long as i can keep north south through the tight spots i should be ok

I wish i was good at fishing but i hate touching slimey things. The extra time in the day i'd rather spend exploring the canyon

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
