The owyhee served up another nice trip over the spring break period. Rome to Leslie Gulch (about 65 miles) paddling the Aire Lynx II IKs. Were going to take the catarafts, but flows kept droppin down down down so switched to the kayaks the night before we rolled out. No body around! Only saw 2 groups, 1 - 8 person group in 3 rafts and 1 - 3 person group in 2 rafts (who were my friends). River was droppin so peeps weren't around. Flows were in the 500s. Nice weather, zero wind (unbelievably), found a few geodes and fossils. Inadvertently Left the fishing rod at the first camp (cheapo $17 spinning rod) so didn't get any small mouth fishin in, might have had something to do with morning coffee and canadian hunter mixture. Camped in the Alvord Dessert on the way down and along the SF John Day on the way home.
