Last year a dozen boats showed up and had a great time exploring the box canyons of the Cowlitz River, deep, fast and a little sporty in places, but with a good turnaround below Mossyrock Dam. The Tilton River is shallow and slow with a lagoon for anchoring in time for lunch, something cold to drink and swimming if so inclined. See some photos of last year.
Mayfield Lake is a reservoir so there is always a danger of floating debris but Tacoma Power does a good job of keeping it clear. There is good cell coverage over most of the lake. It’s a bit of a drive for most of our club but all the first time visitors last year had a great time, hopefully we’ll have some newbies this year as well.
Any questions call Jeff Lucas, 253-820-1624 or Corrine Lucas, 253-355-0518. Hope to see you there!
