    Almost no wind. Water temp down to 42 degrees. Missed two strikes, landed one 18" rainbow. And it was a blast. I got to really work on my casting, as no wind helps in that regards, and a group of otters put on a show that I will never forget. Got very close to one sitting on a log near the...

    Thanks to all that helped out and contributed. We had some ups and downs, but all worked out in the end. We put two veterans that are wheelchair bound in boats this year. The coolest part was one rower brought a specially designed Koffler boat for those in chairs. They were the winning team...
