Reports from anglers estimate 25-30 boats locked up into Pool 4. Far fewer than anticipated. Several teams opted out of the 20 minute run up to the lock from launch at Grand Ecore in Pool 3. Not that far of a run in normal conditions but in a sleet filled 32 degree air, not exactly appealing.
After a 30 minute truck ride, I launched at Red Oak on Pool 4 just in time to hear the boats coming through the lock. I've caught up with a few anglers but none have a fish yet.
Toast to times when all things were possible, all dreams probable, all goals reachable.
