Put in at Greer on Saturday, took out Riverton Sunday.  My first kayak overnighter, kind of a shake down cruise and equipment check.  Gavin is always giving me grief for packing the kitchen sink, so let's see how minimalism goes!

The river is up a bit, I like to wade below 1000cfs for the most part, so I thought to get a good paddle on instead.  Hadn't seen the river below Whitten in years.  I was reminded why 🙄 it's some pretty boring water hahaha.  Got that out of my system.

Pitched maribous all day and caught all I wanted to.  Decent size, and very healthy by all appearances.

Had a good camp below Whitten and my setup kept me dry overnight in some good downpours.  Got off the river by 9am before it really came up!

I was surprised by the crowds once again.  I'm starting to think it's always been crowded and my memories of the "good old days" of solitude on this river are fabricated.  Thoughts?

I'm usually only on 11 pt during cooler months when less traffic would be expected. 
I do agree that the Good Ole Days are behind us. Everybody and their brother has a yak these days.

Going during mid week should be better. Still probably run into a few folks even then.

Looks like the water had a pretty good color to it.  It has been running high since this time last year.  Lots of water in that drainage trickling thru.
