Passy (Passagassawakeag) River — April 2, 2007

Posted by Picasa
Water level was relatively low on the Passy today, despite the rain. (Maybe they are already holding water back at the dam). Left an intermittent trail of red polyethylene on the riverbed! Actually wasn’t that bad. Hit or rubbed over about a dozen rocks overall, including at least a couple I could have avoided. (Won’t risk the new kevlar Ruahine on it just yet). Who’s complaining? It was great to be on the river today!

Chased some geese on the upper river. Then startled a buck who leapt off the left bank and swam across the river just 40 feet in front of my bow.
