We'd actually planned to test drive our recently refurbished Hyde later that day anyway. Kris and Gale did the fishing, while Ron and I manned the oars. As turned out the fishing was slow but with the river running around 2400 cfs the rowing was easy. We put in around noon at Salmon Fly and took out at Browne's Bridge around three...near record time to be sure but not such a bad way to while away the warmest afternoon yet this spring. Because of the weather and that the river has been fishing well most of the spring we expected a crowd; instead I think we saw just two other boats.
