The 3rd is the day of the full moon. A strong ebb tide will give us a good push downriver. High tide at Toledo is predicted to be a little before 1:00. The high tide at the Elk City ramp should be about an hour later, so the plan is to leave the ramp at about 2:15. The 6 1/4 mile float down to the Canyon Quarry ramp should take less than a three of hours. After shuttling trailers and pulling boats and getting back to Toledo it will be time to meet at the Twisted Snout for BBQ. Ask about borrowing a Boathouse rowboat or canoe for the float.
