Lovely sunny day with a few wispy clouds and very calm. Pair of fishermen on the dock catching very small rock & sun fish & releasing them. Spoke with them about Water Rangers and gave them a card to check it out online. Some ducks could be heard in the distance and some boaters & water skiers out on the river.
