This summer has been incredibly dry. August and September are usually dry, but we have not had much rain all summer and now it is really starting to show. The Saint George River heading upriver into Round Pond from Seven Tree is so low getting a canoe through required getting out of the boat last weekend. The beavers sensing a dry fall coming had already started a dam there on Sunday and have made good progress since.
This September is different in that there are still many families taking vacations or staying on into the fall as schools at home are either not starting or starting with remote learning. Most years the kids live vests are put away on Labor day and sometimes sooner. This year I am still guiding families and will be into October.
The end of summer is always marked by a few things cooling water temperatures which brings a noticeable improvement in the fishing success, lots of families with kids enjoying the last of summer and a frantic pace for me.
It has been busy but I think that these pictures say it all!
