I did a 2 night Eleven Point River trip in Missouri in 1987.  It was really beautiful and small.  Sandbars and clear water through a forest.  It's been a long time but I highly recommend unless you like to run rapids.  Some swifts but no rapids to run.  The drive through the winding 2 lane roads is very cool too.  Could be different now though.

Considering a Buffalo River float instead of the BWCA if the fires keep us from going but also want to try it one year in addition to a trip up north. I live in OK, so I'm not far from the Buffalo, but the prospect of camping in Arkansas in August is no super appealing Grin. We want to do a multi dap float, probably the 50 mile variety.

Yes, spring much better for weather and water levels. Check this out, reporting very low and not floatable.  (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

And definitely only go on weekdays.

Ditto.

And use the smallest wobbling lures in your box.  The Smallie bite can be pretty darned good!

Jimbo  Cool
