Sorry I just seen your message. I do not have a drift boat, I have a 14' aluminum with a 25hp Merc. I've never taken it into the AR but would like to sometime. I bought a kayak to scout the river before I attempt to take my aluminum on it. I'm typically up in the barbless area. I'm just minutes away from Riverbend, Rossmoor, El Manto, Sunrise, and Sailor Bar.
Looks like you are at a refuge. Do you have a drift boat? I have prob seen you at some point. I fish out of 12 ft. ugly flat bottom w/15hp. Usually have Springer Spaniel on front deck. Favorite spot for salmon is Gristmill. Don't care for parking deal. Got broke into 2 times last season. Windows. Mabye will see you on the river sometime. Jack
