....... checking out the Potomac during it's flood .

We started at Great Falls (got there during it's crest) , then onto P.of Rocks , Brunswick , Harpers and Millville (Shen) .

Got some good pics. and vids. , especially from Great Falls ... the river at the falls was at least 25' over normal , and nearer 50' on the Va. side . Only the very tips of two of the larger rock structures were showing ... the whole gorge was nearly filled to the brim with massive wakes and waves .

We met a husband/wife (older) in Brunswick of whom the wife when as a little girl , was the family who ran the store there at Whites Ferry . She said she lived over the store in those years ... probably 55 yrs. ago or so . Real nice folks who remember (witnessed) many of the extreme/great floods on the Potomac ... yesterdays extra 50' at great falls couldn't of even compared to some of those .

The husband and I talked how the flood was going to impact the fishing this year . He said it's really messed up the Crappie fishing that's happening right now (the secret place just above Brunswick) .
