Photography: Fall in a Business Park

Are you familiar with those two and three story red brick buildings that cluster together on sweeping, tree lined streets? Business parks, in areas just outside the urban boundary, that house all manner of upscale businesses, consultants and wood paneled walls. This morning I arrived a bit early and sat waiting in my rig as it rained. Preparing for yet another ‘let’s get motivated & focused’ session re ‘sales and the sales person’s personality’. Which is really saying how to manage ops and egos. So, this photo was eye catching from afar.

Start Plotting River Levels via Gages (Safety & Planning)

With recent heavy rains, you can see the river has risen several feet into a not so fishable stage. For this river, the bank angler is best served in the 9.0′ to 11.0′ range.

I remark about this each year as something to do to help you in making a decision whether to drive to the river….or not. That drive might only be 30 minutes or several hours. Knowing what is optimal conditions for safe, potentially productive fishing will save you wasted effort and avoid dangerous conditions.

Now this usually doesn’t just happen. It requires research and observation. I know the above river is nice to fish at a certain level because I have wasted time going without checking in advance the water height after a hard rain. Trial and error at times. Eventually, you just know what is fishable and worth your time.

Also, I have taken 3 sons on numerous outings to Fall and Winter rivers and that makes you really pay attention. Keep notes, remember what the river looks like. Go home and check the level and note it “too low” “blown out” “muddy, but dropping” “perfect” then also note the river level. There are numerous river gage reporting stations around the country although not every river has a gage. Learn if any are in your area and take advantage of the data. Important for wading and boating and even property ownership. Some sites will forecast the river’s trend in the hours ahead given the weather looming.

Here is the same gage a few days later as the river dropped into shape.

Preparedness: Document & Inventory Storage

The approach of the potentially catastrophic storm Sandy to the East Coast of the U.S. brings to mind preparedness on many levels. Food, evacuation, waiting out power outages etc. are the norm and, of course, critically important. But, something else to do when a crisis is not immediate is document and store on a flash drive, safely stored and retained important documents and visual histories of your home/contents.

Important personal documents will assist you & others rebuild your
life after a disaster. Establish digital copies of the following on a password protected flash drive and keep it with your survival gear: Wills, Trusts, Deeds, Titles, Personal & Family records, to include medical records legal & financial documents, Birth certificates Account numbers, Copies of licenses & permits, Home inventory lists, pictures/videos of your home & belongings, and of course insurance policies and contact numbers for future reference.
