We started around 3 PM on Wednesday at Carver with the intention of pulling out at the Highway 65 bridge on Saturday; however, four people in our group took off from the rest of us and ended up at the take out point early Friday afternoon, so the rest of the group lost a much anticipated third night. We were literally "unhappy campers". We ended up finishing the 32 miles by 7 PM Friday.
The fishing was good. I caught a lot of perch, several small mouth bass, and a cat fish (this was my first time to catch a cat fish on this river).
We also saw an elk Thursday evening, which was the first time we had seen one on any of our trips. Around noon of the same day I saw a bald eagle. I've seen a few in the wild, but never up close. This one flew right above me at tree-top level, then circled around a few times. A group near us heard a bear close to their camp site. Glad it was them and not us.
Here are several pictures taken during the trip:
