striper forays, camping trips and of course float trips.
Yesterday my family and I floated the Kennebec. Water managers raised levels due to the Irene event. Clarity was good and by late afternoon numerous browns were rising to a great flying ant hatch. Eagles, ospreys, kingfishers and numerous ducks out working for a living. It's always a great to get a kid's perspective on the outdoor world. It slows you down and makes one observe a little bit more.
recede and clarity improves we are floating with the streamer rigs at the ready. This won't last long. But when it's on it can be really good.
Lake fish will move into river systems with this event. Depending on the outcome of this storm, we could be looking at a great fall season. Whatever happens, be conservative with floats and wades. Play safe out there.
