Wednesday August 24, 2016 Monte Rio CA.
Stiff breeze blows up the river
Ray was going to meet me at Monte Rio for a paddle, but I arrived first and put my boat in the water. I could see a couple guys fishing so I paddled on over to see how the fishing was. It turned out to be Jessie a blog reader. He was catching small mouth bass I believe and caught one as I watched and released it.
Eventually, I saw Ray pull in at the ramp, so I left Jessie fishing away.
I had paddled over across the river from the ramp and Ray joined me there once he got it going.
Paddling down the river
We had already decided to head on down stream, so off we went at a slow pace. The wind was up a bit to a stiff breeze blowing up the river against us, but it wasn’t too bad.
Villa Grande hole
We hung around the Villa hole for quite a spell just taking it easy enjoying the day and decided to go down the river a little further so we started off.
We didn’t get far and with the wind blowing a little Ray said this is far enough so we turned and headed slowly backup the river letting the wind mostly push us along.
We made it back to the boat ramp and went on home for the day.
A day off from the van project
A nap was in order. I decided to take the day off from working on the van project and just puttered around and took it easy for the rest of the day.
Also means no fish either.
