October Hole Gets Tweaked
Wow, I actually have a boating related topic here. Last week we tweaked the October Hole. The tail water was raised signicantly and the pool was made much larger. The structure was not really modified but the rocks that were placed on it were replaced with a much large one. Overall, I am optimistic that the hole should perform much better. It should be a bit slower, more retentive and wider. There are a few more changes, but I will let you discover them.
If you did not get a chance last year to visit it, early in the season the tail water dropped when the back end of the pool washed away, which made it pretty nasty. Essentially we ran out of time and rock when we were building it in mid April. Later in the year a dam was constructed that raised the pool and the hole was "good". We had good flow through mid September until the canal was shut down due to a strong rain season in the fall.
