Life's a River
     Welcome to our river rat page. Unlike many others, when we go to the river we enjoy some peace
and quiet away from the party crowd. This section of the river is the answer for us. It's a stretch that runs
South of Palo Verde clear down to
Lake Martinez. The water is low here with lots of sandbars which
makes it perfect for jet boats like ours. Many times we see little, or no traffic until we get close to Lake
Martinez. With an abundance of abandoned sand bars and great fishing its nothing short of paradise.
Shallow warm water......perfect.
Hanging out on the beach watching the sun go down.
Lots of birds and other wildlife.
Fishing is great, huge catfish and stripers.
Draper Lake - there are many small backwater
lakes like this accessible from the main channel.
