Well I went to Nance's Ferry launch point this morning for my first river trip. BY the time I got there, through gravel back roads and making a few turns based on intuition alone I chickened out. I've never been on a river by myself before and the water was higher and ALOT colder than I thought it would be, especially that far downstream from the dam.
Anyhow I had ran poor, poor directions from the river to Cherokee lake launch point, well after driving around lost for about an hour I finally flagged someone down to get directions and she was so grateful that I was flagging her around that she just smiled and waved and drove on by
I finally found someone at a game checking station and got directions.
Well I finally got to the lake about 2 hours after I wanted to and all I have to show for it is a tiny spotted bass and a sunburn
On the plus side I covered a little over 3 miles of water on the lake and discovered if I throw my legs over the side i can slide forward and access my storage in the front of my Yak(bulkhead?), which I didn't think I could so that was a HUGE boost in Yakin' confidence.As always I was happy just to be out.
