Rowing Your Own River Boat
Using a personal watercraft, such as a WaterMaster, on rivers and lakes will give you the freedom and mobility to access water not heavily fished. Our job is to show you how and where to use a personal watercraft. The adventure should be fun, safe, and productive.
Anglers joining our personal watercraft river outings need to have some rowing and navigating experience. Students enrolled in our University of Fly Fishing are required to take a Drift Boat Rowing course prior to joing a personal watercraft outing OR be able to demonstrate profficent rowing skills in their own personal watercraft.
Most of the time we only use oars on our personal watercraft on rivers, but there are times during the summer when anglers should use fins. This is rare, but if you have fins please bring them to the outing.
