There are be no argument against using the Hog Island drift boat on the Middle Fork in low water is the best solution to late season fishing. Most other companies stop using drift boats below 2 feet on the gage, but we have had no incidents or problems bringing our Hog Drift boats down the Middle Fork at any level, all the way down to 1.65 ft. We have had no repairs either and they have been remarkably durable. They are heavy, but knowing that we will not sink one or dent one every trip is a huge relief for everyone.
