|Had to make sure my sandwich fit before I|
|I even got some worms for my big day, I was|
hoping the milk was good luck to store
it next too!
I was thinking is this the best move...I drove out to Powdercreek to try out my fishing skills while kayaking. I had the lake all to myself. Not one other person showed up all day while I was there.
|Got my pole..should of brought my littler one|
|Tried fishing from shore|
There is a place called Goat Island on the Nebraska/South Dakota border. I know they have some geocaches, wasn't too sure how the flood was on them so I headed north.
Well I found out where I launched at (the only place I knew of) was two miles down river--the Missouri River. The river was nice and calm, but I still underestimated the power to paddle upstream. There are many sand bars now created due to the flood and the low water levels at this point in the season. Made it kind of difficult. I thought I did pretty good had to paddle and even carry my kayak across sandbars to get to more water. There was a final sandbar which was .7 long followed by water. I decided that was enough and I wasn't going to get to the geocaches today. I walked around the sandbar for awhile since the weather got really nice.
|Huge sandbars, carried the kayak across this one.|
|Stank's first encounter with the dead.|
|The only thing I caught today|
|Since I saw some of the dead fish I headed for this tiny pond.|
I thought maybe I could find some fish to rescue in the water that was trapped. I would hate to see more dead fish because of this. I tried to get close but started sinking to bad and getting stuck. I couldn't get close enough to check it out.
|Some of the sandbar drop offs- a couple of feet|
|Not sure what exactly this was, looked like mussels, but I|
don't think those are in the Missouri River.
|Cool piece of wood.|
|The colors on this wood was nothing else|
I had seen on the sandbar.
