so I'm trying to help an out-of-state friend and his wife plan a DIY fall float trip out west for themselves and a couple buddies of theirs; this is the father of my best friend and the two of us might also tag along and help row the old folks down the river. We're looking for a 5-7 day float with good fishing after Labor Day, excellent scenery, and limited lodge pressure... and easily floated and fished from banks and gravel bars. Another factor to consider is logistics; we may need to rent some rafts in Bethel or Dillingham... assuming there are rafts to rent in such places...??
thanks and tight lines!
