I’ve never been in a boat on a river that is controlled by separate dams! During the day the river stays at a very low level and later, the river is flooded by the dams to allow more water into the valley, i recently moved into this section of town and I have been learning a lot about the way that the dams work together.
- I appreciate fishing and I have my own boat.
I’ve been fishing from the docks and from the side of the river where I’ve had some pretty nice luck. I’ve managed to pull in a couple of big-mouth bass, trout, and perch. I got a striped bass that was almost 8 lb. It was easily one of the biggest fish that I have ever caught with the small pole that I was using. Ed recommended we go to the river on Monday to hang out and fish. I mentioned the fact that I have my own boat and they wanted myself and others to bring the boat so we could navigate the river. I told Ed that I didn’t assume much about navigating the river with the dams and they said everything would be just fine. Ed brought recreational marijuana, but all of us smoked recreational marijuana the whole time we were out on the river and I am not used to the way that it makes myself and others feel. I was much higher than I should have been to operate the boat. The effects from recreational marijuana took myself and Ed by surprise and so did the river. I was honestly uneasy when the river was getting so much higher by the hour.
