We had some rain earlier this week and the St Joseph river volume doubled in 2 days from 5000 cfs to 10000 cfs. So my upstream paddles have gotten shorter and I’m getting practice at paddling close to shore and trying to use obstacles to avoid the main current.
One of our regular put-ins is underwater.
Lots of flooded areas where you can paddle among the trees.
Nice and warm makes for a happy coonhound.
