Verm Watch 09

Ice out is coming early this year. I think it's going to be a great year on the Verm. Monday it was completely ice. Today at 1:30 the water was running over the ice about a foot to two feet deep. I checked it tonight and the volume has more than doubled and the speed is like Wausau on crack and steriods!! There are still piles of ice shoved up in the middle of the river so it isn't quite safe to paddle yet but it should be by tomorrow...I'm guessing. Game on!! Who Hoo!

If You guys are getting the itch to get out and paddle the Root river in racine,wi is up and running. Should have good levels all weekend long. 1ooo+ cfs means the all-evil hole is loopable and bluntable on the shoulder. I will be down there with craig and jim most of the weekend starting friday around 1:00.

Hi Matt! I have all the faith in the world that we'll be on the Verm this weekend. One day I'll make it down there to paddle the Root. I hope your winter is going great! Things are good up this way!
