deadfalls seem to be the order of the day.
Been floating down and paddling up tributaries of local river the last week or so.
A LOT of downed trees, and many that just plain block the waterway. The scout canoe I use is just 29 lbs (Dagger/Tupelo, 10.5),so easy enough to drag around, but some of these things are streamers that could get ugly with a heavier, less maneuverable boat. The wind storms always put timber down, but some passage-ways are just plain blocked.
Around here, water is lower than it has been in quite a number of years, even with the very shallow draft boat, a lot of dragging and walking required.
With waders, gun and ammo, and dog in the heavier boat, not optimistic about solo floats close to home. Could be dangerous, and, in some cases, just not "do-able."
Anybody else seeing this? We've had only marginal rains, if any, all summer long.
