      The saint is up- for those who dare. Even the gravel around here is getting treacherous.

      Looks like there will be boating Saturday however.

      How much ice do you anticipate on the river this weekend?

      That’s a good question! I wish I could get out and see. The river pools were frozen solid. One- they can break up as the river rises and go on downstream (be on the alert) but two-  I have also seen them stay put and the water go over them- which is weird as all get out to boat in.

      I think with warming trend Sat. or Su. will be okay.

      There is a lot of water on the ground, and it is now snowing heavily.

      Yesterday mud creek pool was frozen but slushy and we were able to plow through.  Unless if it freezes solid again, it should be good to go.

      Any visual would be great. Probably will go Sunday.
      Thanks for any report from those boating between now & Sunday.

      Caught the saint early this morning in the 18 – 27 inch range. Towards the end of run # 1, the snow picked up quite a bit. All pools were certainly good to go, and I am sure even more clear now with the higher levels.

      The road to D a bit sketchy!

      Will be boating tomorrow a.m.; Shooting for two laps.

        Jason.

        There are several of us coming over Sunday. We should be at D 10:30 – 10:45. Hope to see you there.

      Planning a Sunday run.

      We typically run from 72 down to D just because we travel so far. I will let you know what time we plan to be at D. Usually 10:30 or so.

      It was 29″ when we left at 5 pm Thursday. It is going to be a great weekend I think.

      Thanks to Chris and Levi for the shuttle, who’ve been on the river multiple times.

      Di and Levi are going today.

      Joe, yesterday the mud creek pool had a thick layer of ice that made for a portage at times. It kept breaking and shifting with the current, so maybe it will have washed out/melted by now.

      Any more melting on the way to raise current levels? I was hoping for more water on saturday, thoughts?

      No ice issues at all today.

      And where all of the slackerz?? Its after 2 on a Friday, and there are no shuttle buddies. Get your bums down here or you’re grounded.  ALL OF YOU. It’s a very happy 20″ out, so level snobs need not complain. Besides, everyone knows the best level is 0″.
