Concord River - Egg Rock to Ball's Hill & Back
While I got under way on the Concord, he was planning to paddle the Assabet River.
Shortly I was passing under a very boisterous group of youngsters perched on the Old North Bridge and approaching a much quieter Flint's Bridge pictured at left.
On the trip downriver many dorsal fins of carp could be seen in the shallows...
Between Sawmill Brook and Ball's Hill I accomplished 2 firsts for the season. An automotive tire and a empty propane tank were recovered and secured to my aft deck. The tire's center provided a perfect spot for the tank to ride. Sort of looked like the turret on a military tank.
The trip back upriver was pleasant and another boisterous group held the "rude arch". They seemed to be having a great time.
Back at Egg Rock, I came upon this hapless hawk being relentlessly mobbed by crows and smaller yellow colored birds...
The previously full trash barrel at the Old Calf Pasture has been emptied. Thanks to whoever took care of that matter. Also at the Calf Pasture, a nice new sign greets those who enter and reminds them that litter is not welcome...
My day's catch of 24 pieces posed hullside...
My YTD total stands at 3179.

Thank you for making the river a better place. I like to fish alot and I always have to pick up trash left behind by other fishermans.
