I met Steve for a Monte Rio Kayak today
I was going to meet Steve in Monte Rio today to kayak down river to Moscow hole and back, but first I needed to go help a friend with some water problems in Monte Rio, mostly just questions on his spring. I did that and went on down to the Monte Rio boat ramp where Steve was already in the water, about Noon.
I put my boat in the water and we headed down the river at a leisurely pace.
There were quite a few people on the river today, so we mostly kept on moving at a slow pace down the river, seeking solitude.
We stopped for a break sitting in our boats at Moscow hole then went on down the river just a bit more into a little channel by the island just below Ryan’s beach. There was quite a bit of wild life in the channel.
We stayed in the channel for awhile as Steve tried his hand at fly fishing there with no luck.
We turned around in the channel and started working our way back up the river.
Just above Moscow hole I saw something moving in the green weeds along the shore across the river, so I headed on over to check it out. They didn’t show themselves much, but it was some river otters, fishing in the weeds, headed down the river.
I think we were back in Monte Rio around six P.M. where we took our boats out of the water and went on home.
The wind was up off and on today and it was mostly clouded over. We dressed warm and had a nice day, just the same.
