Far worse than expected

The stream was a deathtrap for anyone who wanted to run it on Saturday. By Sunday, it was runnable by a skilled paddler. Constant class IV stuff, but I could see lines. I don't have the skill to run the lines I saw, but someone with the skills could have done it.
As far as fishing - no chance. The trout all packed up their sunblock and headed for Rio.
We did get in a hike to see a huge waterfall that was well swollen by the rains. Hopefully the photos will come out OK.
Still haven't been fishing this year. I often fish on January 1 to break in my new license. Now the year's 1/3 gone and I still haven't wet a line.
