Re: Yough boat
I've fished the lower yough from the Mon up to West Newton for 25 years probably. Since I was a boy. If you want to know more about that stretch, PM me. For that stretch, which is probably the deepest stretch, with a short shaft and average flows you can probably get up to the launch at Beuna Vista. There's 3 shallow runs between Coulter and Buena Vista that can give you problems, and between Buena Vista and West Newton there's probably 3-4 more runs that will give you fits.
Like Fleroo said, you need to learn the channel if you want any chance at all. My suggestion....buy a jet prop. I know 3 people that fish it often and all have jet props with flat or semi-v's and they can get almost to Connelsville probably.
All depends where you want to fish, and how far from a given launch you want to make it.
That which does not kill me, only makes me stronger.
