You can fish from a boat or from shore in several sections of this river, given the large number of tributaries and changing conditions it presents. There are sections suitable for the use of dry flies and nymphs, especially in the muddy areas and shallows. You will also encounter several sections with downed trees and roots; the use of streamers here will attract the fish that await in the pools these obstructions create.
