check with the property owners about launching on private property. I

it's in my back yard also. Keith. Don
I guess I'll have to do some research at the Courthouse--I know the
dam itself is on public property, and I recall some fuss about how
much adjoining land was to be taken by the state the last time they
rebuilt the dam.
I'll let you know.

- Had a good day paddling on the Fawn River today; I paddled from Star
Mill put-in just off CR 700 North to the 80/90 overpass and back. I
only came across one dead fall in the 2.5 miles I paddled up stream,
and it was not difficult to work around. There was plenty of wildlife
(the usual turtles, ducks and Great Blue's). The highlight of the day
was seeing six Sand Hill Cranes, which I was able to float within 30
feet of and took some pretty good photos. I also saw several Black-
Crowned Night Herons.
For those who have not paddled this part of the Fawn River, it is
weedy in spots, which makes navigating the rive fun. Hope all of you
paddling tomorrow have a good day on the water.
- Jay, How was the water level on the Fawn? Did you paddle the Nevada
Mills section, and you able to paddle over the big downed tree near
- -Tadd, I paddled with Barry and we went from his place up to Orland and
back. The big tree still blocked the river but with the high water we
could paddle out and around it. The water is high but nothing like the
rivers around here, there where some short cuts to take through the
woods but if you bumped a small tree you got covered in snow falling
from the branches. We say a Blue bird so Barry says it must be spring.
