Highs and lows of flows
Lately we have had more high than low flows. Last weekend the flows were pretty good. I did some scouting trips to the Sugar and Contoocook Rivers and caught some fish. Last Monday I took my friend Richard on a trip to the Contoocook River to give him a few tips and here is the little video I put together of Richard with one of the fish he hooked.
The next day it rained and the river was blown out with near-flood-level flows until this weekend. I was pretty busy anyway. On Wednesday I testified at a public hearing about the potential consolidation of a number of NH state departments, including Fish and Game, Agriculture and Parks and Recreation. I guess the Concord Monitor liked one of the sound bites I generated.
