After spending an hour with Dale Hightower he's moving on. He told us that we probably don't want to follow him. He's locking through. Yesterday I interviewed Stephen Browning about how river strategies are affected by change. It's happening now. I've counted 7 boats so far going past us. That's a sure sign that game plans are in a state of flux. More change. The wind has shifted from the southeast to the northwest. Skies are cloudy but the wind is pushing them out.

We just chased Day One leader Dale Hightower up the river from his first spot at the launch site. Here's the setup. He's pitching and flipping a series of logjams on the main river channel. We're in 25 feet of water and he's only 25 yards away. Must be a nice ledge near his spot.
Tournament leader Dale Hightower is fishing along a riprap wall, same spot as yesterday near the launch site. Interesting observation is the boat that's just pulled up and is fishing behind him.
