The boats are out
This is the time of year when the small pleasure boats and fishing boats appear on the river. The water is usually calmer now and we have days at a time when you can actually see blue sky. But, blue, gray, rainy, or fine, when the sturgeon are biting, the boats are out. You can see by the buoy that the current in this part of the water is running upriver, which means that the tide is coming in. However, the river is so large and the currents so quirky that you can have an ebb in one part of the river and a flow in another nearby at the same time. It's a complex world down there. I often wish I could magically see under the water to observe the life, the currents, and the bed of the river like a cutaway view in a museum or movie.
