Wednesday December 28, 2022 Jenner CA.
More rain coming in tonight, but today was to be a nice day. I thought I better get out on the river while I can. I wasn’t sure just how high the river was from the last rains the other day.
Monte Rio boat ramp
I rode on down to Monte Rio as it’s on the way to Jenner, which was by the ocean where I was planning to go for the day.
Everything looked good so I drove on back to the Jenner boat ramp to put in my boat. Only trouble was the boat ramp was full of debris from when the water was up a short time ago from the last rains. I checked things out and decided I could just pull my boat over this stuff to get to the water which I did.
Up the river
The water was a bit muddy and there was debris coming down from the higher waters and a lot of duck weed was also coming down the river from up the river. When the river goes up from rains, it’s like a big flush which cleans the river out. The higher the water, the better the flush.
Headed down river
From there, I crossed over the river to go down the other side to look for critters along the river’s edges.
Hard time landing
Back at the ramp, I had a hard time getting in close enough as there were rocks just under the water that I was hitting before I could get onto the boat ramp and the logs limited the places I could land my boat. I persisted and made it without getting wet.
I had to pull my boat over the logs to get it loaded back on my car and I headed for home for a nice nap.
