Upon arrival to the river I was going to fish today I discovered that it was running high and dirty. Maybe fishable but a little too dirty for my liking and PLAN B seemed like an enticing option so I opted for PLAN B.
Exploring new water is one of my favorite things to do and sometimes new water just happens to be on private land. Staying in the water can be quite treacherous especially when you encounter deep mucky sections so I was glad I had my kayak with me today.
I paddled upstream in search of trout. I saw that there were cattle around so I proceeded with great caution. Cattle can be dangerous creatures especially when there are calves around. There are way cooler ways to die than being gored by a cow.
