Newbie here, welcome.

Interested in a pontoon boat and found this site through a Google search.

Got my decision narrowed down to three:

1/ OutCast Pac800 or 900
2/ Dave Skadden Skykomish
3/ White Water Fabrications Feather lite.

Anyone have any plus's or minus's about these?

The Outcast seems to be the most popular. The Skykomish is new, but Dave Scaddon seems to know his stuff and been around. Haven't found much about the WW Fab boats, but they do look like they'll work well on east coast rivers.

Will mostly be doing up to Class III, and maybe a rare class IV thrown in. Mostly using a toon for fishing/floating rivers as opposed to just paddling.

Can't go wrong with the PAC series of boats.

Another option, based on the size of whitewater you will be running, is to go with a true white water pontoon by Aire or NRS with a custom frame. Price wouldn't be that much more and I think you'd be much happier. Check out some of the white water companies such as NRS, Aire, Sotar, Maravia, Down River Equipment Company and see if you can put something together that truly will meet your needs. Think you'll be happier in the long run.
