As always in McBride, the main course is the Dore. Level was 1.7 which is lower than previous years of 1.9 and 2.2. River temps were a little warmer. The lower levels made for a very technical run to avoid the uncountable holes and made for a few last minute boofs to get out of a bad spot. Hail to the big volume creeker....The crux rapid below the bridge had the normal line blocked by wood so we took the "Nacho" line to left which required a few moves to avoid "Nacho's Hole." Even with the lower levels, the rapid before the take out was still fluffy with a few boats subbing out in a few beauty holes.
Good day on the river with the fellas with the return trip already in the works.
