Toughest Put In's

OK lets see who can beat this for the toughest put in.



I have fished this section a couple of times and these guys have it down to a science. Last time I fished it they beat their record top to bottom in 12 1/2 minutes.

Playback limit already hit for your video?

I didn't get to see it but the lower blue has a pretty gnarly put in. Unfortunately I don't have any video or pics of it. Its probably 100-150 foot slope that you either push your boat down or lower down with a rope

...nothing to see here move along. Fishing there sucks.

The kids running shuttle on that are the local high school football players.

I don't know, it opens for me. 1200' slide down a volcanic trail.

Bro! This is how you do it boys and girls! Brah! Fer sure man.



There are tougher kayak put-ins, some little more than goat trails, but kayaks are admittedly easier to carry down single track than a raft.

Good Lord....well, it's IMPRESSIVE, but I have a feeling those boys didn't buy that raft with their own $$. That's probably a business expense that gets replaced as needed (annually?).

The boat is owned by the lodge. They have a couple that they use on that section but they are slid down that trail most days during the season. The bottoms are coated with bed liner to help with abrasion. As mentioned they have a couple of high school students that assist the guide lowering the boat down.
The hike in isn't much fun either pretty much straight down on a foot trial.
