Im RVing this weekend on the river and was debating taking my hewes as well as the travel trailer to fish. The campground has boat docks and trailer parking but that means im going in my truck and honda pilot as well for the hewes. Wondering if any of you guys know the area well and if i should bother or just fish the banks or maybe rent a canoe nearby.

ideas?

The peace river isn't flatsboat friendly if you're up around the Arcadia area a canoe would be much better. A lot of shallow areas and canoes on that part of the river.

Take the boat!
Take the boat!
Unless he's Camping around Punta Gorda the mouth of Peace river he will be okay but if he's camping Arcadia campground his flatsboat is useless this time of year thats the shallow part Aluminum boats and gheenoes are okay but not a flatsboat. You can rent a canoe right next door to the campground and they take you up river. A boat is useless also in that area because of all the canoes and kayaks on that part of the river.

If you were going to camp in March and you had a 1436 with a 15hp or a 1654 roughneck with a 30 hp which would you take? I am very familiar with another creek a little farther south but have never ran a boat in peace river.

If you're looking at camping around Arcadia I would bring the smaller johnboat with the 15 there's a lot of sandbar upriver. If you're looking around Punta Gorda I would bring the bigger boat hope this helps and post pictures up.
