as always, impressive.
I noticed the bright yellow foam on the paddle shafts--good idea.

Yes, in case of any mishap, paddle floating on the river is well visible with yellow foam.

The adage that you are what you eat is very true for trout. Trout with red or pink flesh have most likely been eating copepods or shrimp. Insect larvae usually result in trout with pale yellow flesh. In lakes where the trout eat black leeches, even the skin of the trout can become quite dark

I enjoyed reading your report, very interesting and the pictures really add to it. Thanks for sharing.

I see you will be at the Wilderness Paddlers Gathering to talk about this trip, looking forward to hearing more.

L&L - congratulations on a trip well done and many thanks for your highly entertaining trip report. It's beyond our capabilities as old folk, but aside from enjoying the drama of it all we picked up some good ideas for our upcoming George trip (we're the grandparents who went down the De Pas the year you did it all the way out the George, only we stopped at Twin River lodge for pickup - this time we'll start there).

A few of the tips: definitely bring a zip stove, rain pants, bug tent, and don't eat falafel! :tsk:
