Just got back from a great day on the water. Launched at Red Coat Landing with a load of surveyors and equipment then ran fifty miles of the North Saskatchewan River to a pre determined point to survey a proposed pipeline crossing. The survey was a 3 dimensional under water view of the river bottom. Seen large flocks of American White Pelicans and 8 Lake Sturgeon feeding near surface at different locations along the way. Not a single fishermen or other water craft was encountered the entire day even in the city limits. The river is on the rise and drift wood was gradually building throughout the day.
