FIRST LIGHT - part 2

Since it's 800 yards from the #23 pool up to the #28 pool, I grab the trout rod, a streamer wallet and I hop into the pickup.

I have a chance to scan the river which runs alongside the regional highway. I hadn?t seen the river on the drive in as it was dark, but in the growing light I can make out the sand bar on the #27. From the length and width of the bar, I can tell that the river is really low, even for the mid summer season.
