View Full Version : Catching some waves

There's an eddy I sit next to from time to time. There was a tree down in it for a couple of months that has since washed a bit farther down the river. Mostly, the river is lazy at this point, and shady on the same side as the eddy. So the folks doing a river float tend to drift to that side and lay back and relax, not realizing that it's there. The efforts of people to avoid the rocks when they find out is sometimes funny. (the rocks are easily avoided and most of the river there is shallow, so there isn't much danger to anything except the rafts)
The eddy itself:

The water is deep enough in that spot to be noticeably green. There's just enough plant debris that you sometimes notice it in the waves.

I like water shots. That 1st shot in post #3 is nice with the green in it.

Can you fish in here?

Yes, you can, and people do year round. There's a sign near that spot detailing the equipment allowed and limits. The river along that stretch is mostly no deeper than hip deep, so there are regulars that just wade out to the middle and cast. One of my coworkers sometimes goes out on his lunch hour and fishes.

There's an official trout habitat maybe a quarter mile upriver. I don't know if Fish and Game does any stocking, but they might.

Cool. I thought it looked like a nice trout river.
