It's probably too late now but on my last San Juan trip in mid June when the river peaked at around 11,000 cfs we lost an oar near tiger wall. Forgot to tie my leashes at the put in!! Uhhg. Anyway, it's a Sawyer Polecat if anyone finds/found it. Otherwise I guess the river gods needed some tribute from me anyway. Thanks.

Out of curiosity - what is Tiger Wall on the SJ?

Tiger Wall on the San Juan.. a mile or so downstream of the Sand Island launch. The river runs almost perpendicularly into a large semi-undercut wall of sandstone with desert varnish stripes. The river exits to the right. At higher flows there's a sticky eddy to the left. It's common to get pushed into the wall and hesitate before scraping off downstream. For this reason the oldtimers running wooden boats called the place Splinters & Sparks

Mangled a bimini there a couple years ago. That's not a good place to be cooler fishing.
