    Default Rabbit slough/DL question

    Don't mean to beat the dead horse or anything but... I have never made the portage into duck lake from the rabbit slough side. I have a 14' flat bottom boat with an 18 horse copperhead. I have some pipe rollers for the boat. Do you all think it would be too difficult to make that portage with 2 guys? Secondly, is that boat to big to run the lake? Or is this the place to go solo with the sneak boat?
    It's not skybusting if you fold em'.

    Its going to be extremely hard this year with that size of boat and motor. Water is extremely low. Was out yesterday and got stuck in the EBADS with the 12. I would wait and see if the water comes up with tides first...the channel does not have any room for other boats if they are in there. If you don't know the channels to run and come off step you will get stuck.

    sounds like it must really be bad out there, still hoping to get mine back together and get out myself.

    This is all true. I live near the slough and water levels are crappy this year. Heck it's so low, the salmon haven't even made it up into the neighborhood yet. The last time I fished Wasilla Creek, I could probably cross in flip flops in areas, and my feet stay dry.
