For a 1st run of the season, that was an ass kicker. The whitewater was great, but my body has not dealt well with the abuse from the takeout. I have never had my calfs this sore. It doesn't help that I had to get up at 4:30 this morning to sit at a desk all day. I've now done it at 350 and 600 cfs. 600 was much better. The level this weekend was nicely padded out, no big holes, but the sieve factor was still very high. Fortunately the "fun factor" was very high too.
