Launched at the main harbor, and paddled up the east arm of the river. It was easy at first, but they have opened up the gates some, and there was some flow at i made my way up stream. i had to get out three times to portage some small shallow sections, not to bad. The smallies were killing it, although there was nothing big, the amount of hookups still made it a blast.
No action until i ported the first riffle, and then the action was great. The water was moving faster due to the open gate, and i had enough fish in the boat to hook and pass to my three year old. A yak is the only thing i would try this trip in, and there were plenty of high centers and bumps along the way.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
