    Default floating the little willow

    Has any one floated the little willow before? If you have and can give me some advice I would be very greatful. I am taking my father in law fishing tomorrow. I normally just walk into a place and fish it, I have never floated down the little willow before or fished it, but he wants to put some water miles on his one man. PM me if you want or post on here works to. We are basically chasing bows and I don't want to take him on a snipe hunt. My only other option is the willow I think and I am not sure if bow fishing is better below the hwy or not.

    Have floated it a few times. Its a much longer float then you think it might be. With fishing and floating your looking at a solid 8-10 hours. It is a GREAT float. The "hard" part is the take out. You take out about 1/4-1/2 mile downriver from the willow creek mouth. There will be a tree hanging out over the big su, the take out is RIGHT AFTER THE TREE, just be ready for it. Otherwise its no problem. Have fun

    It's a good float. Long. Water is a little different than the willow. We take out at the same place as you would floating the willow.
