206. Macro Monday: Gavin’s Point Dam

Every year fishermen get their licenses to snag paddle fish as they migrate down the Missouri River.  Fishing boats line up against Gavin’s Point Dam in hopes of snagging a paddle fish.  This year was not like most years, they opened all of the gates of the dam due to the earlier flooding on the Missouri River.  This pushed the fishermen back from the dam and caused some very rough waters, but the fishermen all braved the conditions and went out and caught their paddle fish anyways.

The next shot is of the entire dam….

  1. Hi Tammy,
    Awesome pictures! We have a dam here that the fisherman like to fish at too. Ours has been rather dry this year as we are having a drought. Have a great day!


  2. Great capture. Looks cold and powerful!

  3. These photos really show the power of water!! Nice captures.

  4. Love the Macro Monday Motion that thes Dam Shots have provided.

  5. lots of water running through there. I bet it was very noisy. I like the parallell gates by their own on teh first shot

  6. What’s a paddle fish?

  7. I like whatever shutter speed that you used on the macro, that water coming through the damn is really beautiful.

  8. Interesting post Tammy, now I get it. Powerful water for sure and great pictures to share.
