Today’s report does not involve fishing.  The clients on the boat just wanted to tour the beautiful White River.  With that in mind, we launched before 2:00 in the afternoon.  Generation was already in progress from the dam so we proceeded down river from Houseman.  Our first stop was at Blue Springs where the guide gave a bit of information on the history (and temperature) of the springs.  Moving on we enjoyed the the scenery and wildlife and the pretty homes along the river bank on our way to the little Golden Gate Bridge at Beaver.   We saw some shad trying to escape a denizen of the deep only to play into the talons of a denizen of the sky, a bald eagle.  We made our way under the bridge and talked about the abandoned railroad trestles before turning around and checking out the scenery a few minutes more on our return to Houseman.
