~ For years serious fishermen have asked us to build an open boat that can take on big water, while at the same time run rivers where some of the best fishing is found.
Let us introduce the Clearwater Valley series. With two models, the 206 and the 256, we've covered our bases.
The longer CV 256 drifts true when you want to side-drift long , stretches of river and its hull allows you to keep your drift straight. Designed with a 9 degree V at the transom the hull tapers up to 12 degrees at the bow. It's flat enough to run shallow water, but still has enough V in the hull that it reduces chop and tracks nicely.
The CV 206 is built with our reverse chine hull, which adds a lot to this boat. Not only will you be able to free drift for long stretches without worrying about staying on course, but when you're running it you'll be able to handle big water like the Columbia. The CV 206 has a 14 to 24 degree variable V hull and works equally well with pump or prop. It's quick to plane and can maneuver tight, shallow rivers yet cruise through big water with ease. You can thank our reverse chine for that.
When you get inside a Clearwater Valley model you'll instantly notice the room. With lots of storage, and a wide-open floor design, you'll have plenty of room to play a hot salmon, pack in the family for a day of fishing, or pick up a group of clients for a day of guided fishing. It's the perfect boat for all of those applications. It may have taken us a while to get into the open boat market, but once we decided to do it, we did it right.
