I know Freddie gave me the "Are you sure" look before we crossed there a few weeks before. I know I am sure glad I've taken several swift water rescue courses as sometimes what appears on the outside to look nasty really is the easiest path.

My only regret is that we didn't catch more fish, and that I could have shown you a few more features. Guess we will have to go back

Are you sure the last time I saw them they were on a porch swing with a small dog laying on top of them.

Hi All,

Rangers at the Townsend entrance are letting people walk into the Park. Yesterday, we had a beginner fly fishing class and they were allowed in. Doug and I drove up to the entrance and talked to a couple of Rangers a few minutes ago. They said it is OK to walk in but be aware, you are on your own. Don't get hurt!

I asked about bicycles. They are not letting them in at the entrances where Rangers are on duty. If you entered somewhere else on a bicycle, I don't know what to expect.

So, you can walk into the Park and fish. While we were there several people walked by and proceeded up Little River.

These guys and gals are very sympathetic to all of us as I am feeling the same about them. They are doing their job and talking to a lot of people all day long. I'm sure they are getting grief too from some people.

There is quite a bit of space to Park at the Townsend entrance. There might have been 10 vehicles there when we pulled in. We didn't have a problem finding a place to park.

Byron

Have some nice pictures of tasteful civil disobedience. There is also some political drivel but they are still worth a read.

That statement holds true where we were, regardless of a shutdown!

Hey let's see some more pictures!



Pale rainbows thrive here



James moving up, Adam fishing a nice spot to the side



How could you NOT love it here? Adam in 'sneak attack combat ninja fishing' mode



The red parts are slippery... walking up in the flowing water is somehow safer...



Adam working a good eddy

I came over the top of a waterfall and saw James with his rod bent over at the pool on the other side...



Inspecting the catch



No, they will not pay any attention to whatever you are throwing at them....



Frothy goodness



There's a rod up there with my name on it.... literally. I guess it will wait for another day...



No broken rods, no lost water bottles, no slip and fall ins over class 5 rapids, no lost rods... I think I finally broke the curse!

Fun as always, guys. Great fishing with you Adam!

Great fishing with you too Nathan some good pics there! Loved it when you pulled out that civil disobedience sign. I guess any wild trout stream can be a dangerous place to fish if one is not very careful but this one I would say is very dangerous. I am glad these guys were here to show me the ropes. Crossing that white water and fishing class 5 rapids is not for the faint of heart. Although the journey to the stream and out was probably the strangest/scariest part. Something I will never forget.
