The river was lower this year, so there was no problem launching the boat and installing equipment.
Rather than using the boat to tow the doppler meter, we set up a pulley system and towed the meter with a rope from the shore. Worked fine and safer than boat work during high water.
Wanted to put the boat in at Phelan Creek, but the boat launch was covered by thick shore ice. The survey on the upper Delta will have to wait until the ice is gone.
While Summit Lake was mostly ice covered. Gulkana Glacier, in the background, is the source for Phelan Creek.
