Steamboat Town run

Not too many places listed here that you can float, eat and drink, and then continue on; with no driving required. Mishawaka is certainly in that catagory.
Downtown - river right, you can sometimes throw a rope to someone, tie up on the rocks, and climb the bank up to the back yard of Sunpies. Great po-boy sandwiches, and STRONG hurricanes and other thirst quenchers (not for the driver of course).
Pay your tab with a soggy twenty, and jump back in for the C hole...

Also add stops at Sweetwater and Double Z before the C hole.

Certainly enjoyed 5 mile bar and Buckskin Bill's on the Main, porter root beer float...

Rich are you coming up to Idaho this spring? Looks to be a good year to hit the Lochsa and others.
Plan on being in Yellow Pine for the 4th of July.
Really hope to catch the South Fork at a proper level.
Right now the snow pack in Colorado is shaping up to be a great year so might stay close to home for May & early June.

Was not sure if LeRoy's Pleasure Park was still open. It has been years since he ran our shuttles in a beat up Suburban held together with duct tape.

I have very fond memories of pizza and sierra Nevada on tap on an outdoor patio in downieville after my first nf yuba many years ago. Not quite the take out (we did Rossascos that day) but would work if coming off of moss canyon I think. Bliss.

Pleasure Park still open even though LeRoy passes several years ago. His wife Caroline still runs the place.

3 laps yesterday. Amazing day in Sedona. I wonder if anyone went for the AZ trifecta? Ski, paddle, ride? The paddling was too good to care about a powder day or perfect trail conditions.

Kern: If you run the upper down to the park you end in up Kernville so u have allot of choices. The Hut, The Sportsman, River View, Kernville Saloon and a short drive up road is Kern River Brewery

Kaweah: You can have drinks at The Gateway Restaurant at put in then stop at River View for lunch. Patio is right over river, pull up boat and walk in. Pick up 12er at the gas station by the “Slickies” you are good to go

South Fork American: Run the upper and take out at 49 bridge u can take a short walk to the River Shack or Coloma Club. Greenwood take out is just down road. Also, grab more suds at gas station for lower.

North Yuba : Downieville Put in for Rossaco Ravine take for Moss Canyon. Walk up from river right and take your choice, cool old gold mining town.

These two are a short drive from takeout but are on way and are total classics.

Tuolumne: Iron Door in Groveland. Boaters, bikers, local tweekers and French tourists on their way to Yosemite all hanging together at California’s oldest bar ( or so they say)

North Fork American: ( Giant Gap) Head to the Cape View on Hwy. 174 outside of Colfax. It might be called The Red Frog now but either way it has a great patio w/ a view back into Giant Gap that is really nice. Catch it at sunset and it was totally worth the short drive off of 80.

Alas, Bedrock Store has been closed for the past few years. Would make a good Mountain Buzz International Headquarters.

Gateway takeout on the Dolores has a swanky resort with very clean bars and restaurants with no prohibition on river stink. All I could think of when eating there after load-out was: "How much for the little girl?"
