Where the high water runs over a dam and the animals use it as a way to go up and down the creek since there is no ice there.They follow the pressure from the running water when travelling both up and downstream.It is the first place where you can drive stakes in early spring.
One of the first sets to use during breakup since the ground is still frozen near shore(cant drive a stake).

Boco,
I can't see the last pic clearly because the bazillion black flies are waking up from a long winter's nap and a gazillion of 'em are on your camera lens wink

Blessings,
Mark

Way too early for the blackflies Mark,lol.The water is numbing cold(went over the hip waders yesterday).
They will be out in June,but it is dry in the bush so likely not a bad year for them coming up.
I am pretty much immune to the blackflies after 60 odd years,but the mosquitos in the early morning and late evening still make me light a smudge.

We got more snow last night, so it ain't happening here for a while yet.
