Hey fellas! 44 you like like you're doing fine this season! Chief, the hot weather has been terrible here as well. I've been out once for an hour and a half. I dug 3 0z. That's the only time I've been. I've been working 7 days a week since the July 4th weekend! I was off for Labor day weekend but that's it. I don't know if I'm going to get to go much or not. It was 97 here yesterday but supposed to have a break coming. I hope you guys dig a bushel!
Hey trapper, It don't look like the temps are going to cooperate this month. It's terrible dry out there too. I think I might just hold on to what i've dug already and it will give me a nice head start to next season. I've heard the prices this year may be a little iffy, but you know how that goes. I may take a look around come late September or early October, but that's kinda where i'm at with it this year. I love that sengin, but not enough to get out there in this kind of heat, lol. Hope you get some time off to enjoy some good time in the woods!
Went down to the river yesterday to check it out. The water is about down to nothing and the water temp was about like bath water. It's usually cold even in the summer months. Downright scary. Good time to do some gold crevicing though. Lots of exposed bedrock out there, lol. Not much rain expected in the extended forecast except for a few isolated thunderstorms.
