Quick Afternoon Canoe...

A quick afternoon canoe trip to Caney Creek Park on Sam Rayburn was nice quiet fun. Not many folks around and the park while perfect for our purpose is in poor shape. I think it took a good hit during the hurricanes and has not recovered. It's great for a boat launch, primitive camping or wild life viewing. 

We caught 6 big bream.

A nice day for sunbathing. No this turtle is not swimming in my belly. The turtles let the small boat get up close to them where they clear the area when the big boats come. 

A creek with a huge clog of an invasive species giant salvina trapped behind a log. This spot is about 10 miles from the first place I ever saw giant salvina in Sam Rayburn several years ago. Salvina kills the wave action that puts oxygen in the water. Most plants are good for fish in one way or the other. This one is bad. 

A red eared slider. In addition to turtles we saw lots of wood peckers and a baby deer frisking around. 

Note the salvina in the background. I have heard it gets so thick a dog can walk across it.
