Not to cut into the 8:30 action- but I am not a fan of the river at 6″.
Some of us are planning a 1 pm trip and hopefully catch the rising crest.
Hope it goes to 15″ again!

Can’t get out of work, but plan to come over right after. Be there around 6 if anyone is up for a late run.

Nate squared, Nat and I will be down around noon and hopefully the four of us will catch folks on second runs along with Chuck and Di.

Still going up- but remember, the level reading at 72 takes at least 2 hours to get to MS.
Yesterday I put in on the crest at 72 and rode it down, and even though I was going really slow and enjoying the solitude and nature (eagles and egrets, turtles, water snakes, etc.) I still had to wait a bit for dbl drop to go to 15″.
So it’s 9:15 now- the 15″ that registers now, will not be at MS until 11….and if it peaks higher…..icing on the st fran cake!

Got on the river at 9am at 3″ and got off at 11:30ish and it was 10″. Keep rising Saint.

What a day! There were so many people on the river I kept thinking it was Saturday.
Strange levels thru the day…12″ at cat’s paw, but double drop went into 15 inches, then by take-out at 5 pm it was 11 inches.
We’ll try it again tomorrow- D at 1 pm.

Should have posted last night, but D Bridge was ~6 inches at 8:45 last night. Me and Eric had the entire river to ourselves. Too bad we missed everyone, but still the best day ever!

Whoa, I missed boating with the famous John Kuthe! Thank you all for boating with Colleen yesterday and showing her how the pros of the MWA roll, she told me she had a great time and is looking forward to learning how to get better and better on rivers like the St. Francis. This is why this organization is great – new people can come in and hang with some of the best.

It was a wonderfully surreal day with the changing water levels. My wife just laughs now when I say it’s
the last day of the paddling season.

I’m not one of the pros, I didn’t even flip!
Colleen looked epic! Hit every roll, no swims, and styled a number of things!
