    Well, I finally got to drop the boat in for an hour and a half this afternoon. Wanted to make sure everything was in working order before leaving for my trip this weekend. Also got to try out my new Hummingbird 767gps/fish finder, have to say it is a really nice unit, and the best that I have ever owned, and very affordable for everything on it. Anyways, the river is dropping, until this next blast tonight and tomorrow. lol.. the water temperature on the unit read 35.1 degrees.. Burrrrr!!!! Didn't do any fishing, just drifted 5.2 miles an hour! And had many people honking horns at the idiot on the water!:big_smile: rollo

    i would about bet if it gets into the 50's here, the river will be booming with all the melting snow. i hope it breaks soon though, im looking forward to hitting it hard when i get back from the James..rollo

    Well Randy .... at least you gave it your best shot .... next time it will be better. The raccoon and Licking a way today and more rain and then snow on the way ... so it looks like it will be at least another week before back to normal and fishable. .... Garry-:cool2:
