Saturday February 6, 2021 Monte Rio CA.
The sun was shinning nicely at my house this morning so after doing my chores and getting it going for the day I got my stuff and drove on down to Monte Rio to paddle and see how the steelhead fishermen were doing since I saw a lot of fish coming into the river yesterday down at the river’s mouth.
As I was unloading my boat at the Monte Rio boat ramp these steelhead fishermen landed and a guy said, hey Bob. They had just come down the river from Guerneville about 4 miles up the river. The guy that said hey Bob said my blog was better for fishermen when I was on the river more and he wasn’t interested in chickens. :O)
They hadn’t caught any fish today, such is steelhead fishing.
No fish caught
Down the river
So I continued on down the river going by this pair of mallard ducks feeding. The male wasn’t feeding but watching over the female feeding which usually means she has a nest of eggs she is sitting on someplace.
Just as I approached the hole I heard a siren and a pickup go by which was really getting it on sounding like a rip roaring roadster. That’s the first time I’ve ever heard the local rescue guy Steve Baxter go that fast so it must have been someone needed some real help quickly. He was headed down towards the ocean.
Paddling up the river
I saw this bird in a tree across the river from me and it looked like a king fisher. I approached and didn’t expect to get a picture as they always fly off just before you can get a picture of them but today it stayed long enough to get several pictures before taking off.
No fish were caught
So I made it to the boat ramp and loaded my boat and drove on home for the day.
Spring is here
