Got home from the Middle Fork Saturday night. Great trip. Launched from Indian Creek on 9/10 @ 1.89 ft. The most folks I've seen at Indian Creek in the past 7 years of doing September trips. Multiple commercial fishing groups, and more folks coming from the top. But after our first camp, we saw next to no one until our next to last day. Weather was very good, with some rain & cooler temps the last two days, but not that bad. We loved the higher water level. I didn't see the log in the center right of Tappan 3 that was there last year. There was some fire activity near Ship Island, and the River Patrol was reassigning some of the lower camps in that area when we stopped at "the B." There wasn't much smoke by the time we passed that area however. All in all, a really great trip. Our camps.....Marble Creek, Rock Island, Funston, Wollard, Ouzel, with two layovers.
