Well haha, bad judgement and thirst for adventure I guess.
It's my brother's first season on the river but he's a natural. We wanted to hit the river after work but I was thinkin there's too much water in the canyon for him.
So I figured the lower NF would be easy enough for him, but enough water to be fun for me. I had never ran it but have fished about half of it so I know what to expect.
I knew it was late and we would be paddlin in the dark, my main concern was makin it to the reservoir while we still had some light, which barely happened.
We didn't have time to scout stuff which made for some good read n run and some fun surprises. There were a lot of strainers and the river was well over it's banks, but in my opinion that's the only time to hit it!
Putting on at a reasonable time would have allowed us to float all the way to the truck, but I just wanted to spice things up on a monday night ha
