It has been awhile since I’ve seen Barry in the flesh, but you will find his prose at Drifting the Prairie Ocean. You will find his most current information about the Blue River and photography as well at that site. He guided my bro-in-law and myself once we decided to do the Blue, and although it certainly isn’t all that complicated, that early encounter was a perfect example of the old adage, “GET A GUIDE!” He saved us a lot of time, left us with plenty of information, and revealed a deep concern for the Blue and how important conservation is as it pertains to that river and its fishery – really taking ownership, and leadership as outside forces were moving in with their own interests placed way ahead of the Blue River.

The actual report from Barry is a Pay-Per-View read – obviously necessary to curb a stampede that no one wants. It’s amazing what one tin dime will do to people’s perspectives isn’t it?

    WARNING – I heard from JH today. He went to the Blue River yesterday, and reported, “That place needs two more weeks, and another hard freeze to get rid of the snakes and ticks. It needs a lot more fish too.” All I can say is, now you know before you go. 11/25/15
