Was thinking some smaller impoundments like plum orchard, big ditch, elk fork..etc would work fine for a raft. You may look a little silly with a whitewater raft, but it should be easy to fish from and you wouldn’t need a shuttle. The only issue I see is on windy days. You guys ever do this?

Sort of... never fished while on a lake in my raft.

But, when learning to row I went to a local lake many times.

Now I even take my drift boat to a lake when my wife wants to float and not to fish.

Often times the current from incoming streams can be strong.

Don’t worry how you look... enjoy it!

It can suck especially with any wind at all... but I do run a smaller 12ft bucket boat with a trolling motor on a rare occasion. It's anything but ideal though

A certain board member and myself saved an entire trip by floating his raft on a lake
