With 3 guys, gear and 2 dogs, it's a little slow moving up river, but I have never had a problem. Do you know what the water level is like? Abnormally low, normal, etc.? A few thousand birds have left the lakes I hunt here in NV a few weeks back and I was hoping they followed the Colorado. The migratory push seem to have began. New birds are in up here. Let me know your thoughts.
