I hate this. Big Gulp cups and other trash left on the shore. A huge sign of ignorance.

I generally don't get too worked up over a single fire ring but never can understand why every once in a while you see several in the same area.

That said, ya gotta love when someone videos and then posts their criminal behavior. . . . and to such soothing music. It would be too funny if the guy ends up with a citation in the mail. Wouldn't be all that difficult to find him.

Furthermore, for newbies that have landed on this site with a google search for Wallowa/Grande Ronde floating info, a couple more videos on impacts from lack of fire pan use.





here is a little lecture on groover use:

Well take a look at the second video above of what not to do on my original post. The video is of a group of kayakers, also showing them fly fishing, with a big ass fire right up on the bar in the middle of camp. Ignorance is not limited by fishing style. Also if interest is, 2 of the 3 videos are of Kayakers. Maybe they think cause they have limited space they are exempt from packing out poop and not using a fire pan. FYI to kayakers, you also must follow the rules.

As another spring rafting season commences, I am amazed by the lack of use of fire pans and grooves by what appear to be well seasoned river crews.

My hope is that folks looking to float the Wallowa-Grande Ronde might find this thread through a google search. If this is pertains to you, please do not build fire rings (or use existing rings) for big old camp fires like these shit weasels do at minute 2:42. It is against the law. It is easy to use 2 oil change pans to make a simple fire pan.

Stephen Mathras, you and you crew are assholes, I know exactly the camp you and your crew felt the need to defile. congratulations for making my long running shit weasel list

not my video, but the start shows a cheap way of how a fire is properly contained in a cheap oil pan. Bravo
