New River – very low on January 19, 2018

Campsite 1 on the New River is around 1 mile from the put-in at FR 22 and several miles through winding sandy forestry roads by car.  Normally the water is up to the banks.  Here are some other photos from that site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Campsite 17, the next campsite on the river, around 8 miles down has exposed logs around a bend to the north of the campsite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Gully Branch Road a young kayaker from Wacissa was docking his Bass Pro fishing kayak, his day an absolute bust, but he was grateful that he caught the inflowing tide on the upriver paddle back to where his van was parked.  He’s camping at Pidcock Road campground on Cash Creek and yesterday caught 16 fish.  We’ve always seen fish jumping on Cash creek, rarely on the New, but he was hoping to get a few catfish.   Tomorrow his friends are joining him; hopefully they’ll be successful.

Lots of hunters on the roads.
