Was hoping to get some input on running a sled above borst park.

Google maps satellite makes it look relatively simple, but I know looks can be deceiving. I've spent some time navigating above/below mouth of satsop without incident.

Figured with the high river levels maybe some fish have made their way up there.

Thanks!

how high are you looking to go? i've gone up there a few times in the usual winter flows(3000+) and from what i remember, it's pretty much all dead froggy stuff, and deep. i don't think there's anything much fishing looking until you get up by the mouth of the newaukum, and that's a bit of a run.

Satsop mouth and up river IS NOT WHAT ITS BEEN IN THE PAST, major changes have taken place...

I've not been there BUT I'm in contact with people that "its a white knuckle" run now.....


Be safe

Up to newaukum is about as far as I'm interested in going.

*Edit* ended up going upriver a few miles, it was a lot of frog water. Went down to Lincoln Creek. Saw a few role, fed the squawfish some eggs.
