Snake

Postby 3am » Wed Jul 03, 2013 5:19 pm

I was wondering if any of you could fill me in on some of the better known boat eaters on the snake, I've never boated on the river portion of the snake, just the reservoirs. Any info on sandbars that are just hidden or rocks in the middle of the channel that shouldn't be there but are, that sort of thing. Areas im most interested in are the parma area which I've heard has a bad sandbar, but I don't know where, Celebration park area to Marsing. So if you could help me stay dry this season it would be much appreciated, and any general know how about boating the river that would be usefull as well.

thanks for the reply. Gong to check out the river today probably near map rock to get an idea of what im dealing with so I can take the boat out tomorrow. I was also thinking and wanted to know, if you guys prefer to hunt out of the boat with a blind or do you usually get out and set up in the brush of the bank or island? The pros on tv hunting out of boats are always on slow water or still water for that matter, but the snake i'd think the current would make that a bit more difficult. Im trying to decide if I want to build a boat blind for this season or just work out of the brush.

Find a nice spot and work out of the brush. No use in fighting currents and dragging anchors, and putting too much work on the dog
Give a man a duck... Feed him for a day... Teach him to fowl hunt... Feed him for a lifetime...Teach him in your spot... Learn to hunt a different spot....
