Less Traffic Than I Expected
I travelled on the Snake and Columbia Rivers from Lewiston, ID to Vancouver, WA last week, from Monday through Saturday. We were underway 6 to 10 hours a day, with about half the time in the dark.
I was surprised at how little vessel traffic there was. We didn't have to share a lock with anyone, and rarely met more than 1 boat an hour, even including towboats.
Is there a time of year that's busier than July in this area?
