fun float

2 posts in this topic

went on a canoe float yesterday... what a fun day. We brought a predator call and 2 .22's. The water has receded about 3' since the high water from snow melt. We didn't see any fox or 'yotes, no coons or skunks. But did I ever wish that it was duck opener again. We saw hundreds of mallards and geese. Some around every bend. THere were also many buffleheads and hooded mergansers. The pheasants surpised me. We had to have seen 40 hens, but... We only saw 2 rooster's. I thought that was strange, just part of their habits this time of year. Not sure but w/ the polarized glasses I saw many fish. Mostly suckers and chubs; but there were definetly a few brown trout that I saw. River changed quite a bit from last year. New downfalls, a new portage, and a couple different eddies. Some downfalls made some very nice holes to fish. I know where I'll be for Trout and Duck openers this year. I wish I could have had a shotgun and a rapala or 2 yesterday. What a blast, I would reccomed a float down your local stream on the warm days coming up.

now THAT sounds like a good idea! I have been meaning to do just what you did for a long time now, but get caught up in so much else this time of year. I know what you are saying about the pheasants, but I have seen the opposite-tons of rooties, but few hens. Gonna be a great year for them this fall.
