Deso failure

0-6 already this year. Was really counting on pullin a Deso as a fall back if i whiffed on everything else. Whiffed that as well. You think there is a chance for cancellations on in May/June? Likely call in a Cat permit if not. Pity part over in 5..4..3..2..1..

You're not alone......I'm 0 for 8 this year. May/June is prime time Deso, but you could get a lucky cancellation.

Just pulled a permit for Aug. 2-7. Never been, so My wife and I might be interested in adding another raft. Any interest?

I snagged a late season Deso put-in Set 27th and we're looking to expand our river posse! Especially with people familiar with this trip - it's my first time down... So, if you're not successful getting a better date, perhaps there's a chance to come play with us! If it appeals to you, let me know ~

Deso cancellation permits are usually easy to get. I snagged one last year for the end of June and as the date got closer more and more showed up.
