2018 Permit Commiseration Thread

Hi All,

Just thought I'd start off this years thread

Missed on all draws to 4 Rivers in my group again. We are now a running 0/60 over the last few years. Back to the cancelation page we go!

Best of luck to your inbox's, but if you're here it probably didn't go well.

For those who won, enjoy and may there be water under your boats! (And don't forget to invite unfortunate strangers on your trips, we carry stuff!)

Ha ha!
Just looked at four rivers results and figured I would find this years version of this thread!
No valentines day "love" for me either, or Juan 2 days ago, crossing fingers for Dino now.

Will still be a great season no matter what though, low water, no permits, but will still get out there and have a great time!

It is frustrating to spend a $100 just for a chance to go on these trips and not get drawn year after year. I have not been drawn yet, luckily I have had someone in my group get drawn the last 2 years for the Salt. To get one person drawn it has taken me convincing 15 people to submit, luckily its close by so its not as hard. Unfortunately with the other trips its hard to get people to commit to going that distance so I only get like 3 takers on submitting for those. I feel I must be insane to keep throwing my money at them and not getting to go. Keeping my fingers crossed for Dino hopefully my luck will change.

I finally won! ... A Salt permit... with less than 30% of average precip. Damn. Hope I didn't waste all my luck!

me too, and if I spent as much money on lotto tickets as I do boating gear and chasing elusive permits, I might even win it!

That stinks you won the Salt this year. It has not crested 200cfs yet and the snow is all but gone. Hopefully this storm this week turns into something good. I was actually ok that we did not win that one this year. I will go as low as 350 and I don't think we are even going to get that this year. I am going to take the IK out on the Verde next week to make up for no salt trip this year.

So far, no one in my group of 8, has reported any success in the Four Rivers lottery; but we did score 4 Rogue permits and one San Juan.
