Sound Rivers intern William Wallace was on the water this week and on a mission to check out some of Sound Rivers’ camping platforms on the Tar-Pamlico River.
William set off from Mason’s Landing on Tranter’s Creek on Wednesday on a scouting mission to find the three platforms located closest to Washington and make assessments as to their condition. His report: they all need some work. Those interested in volunteering to make a few basic repairs on the camping platforms are welcome to email Sound Rivers Program Director Clay Barber at email@example.com.
Though William has spent plenty of time on the water in his lifetime, he hadn’t been on the Tar-Pamlico River in many years, he said.
On this outing, William spotted signs of otters near the camping platforms and had some fishing success in the afternoon, reeling in a speckled trout (which he threw back).
(And if you happened to see a guy on a skiff blowing through the No Wake Zone at the Washington waterfront yesterday afternoon, it might have been because a certain skiff’s throttle got stuck at full speed … scary, but all turned out fine!)
