Canyon - yes there are still a ton of minnows, scuds, crayfish and leeches. Unfortunately I am back in GA now. I will be back out there in Sept and I'll get some good pics.

The theory on the plume pipe is it will give the air a release point and the ice will not be able to lift off of the water. If we can keep the ice sitting on the water, the plume WILL melt a hole. The pipe sticks up out of the water 2.5' to 3'. The sun should heat the pipe up enough that it melts the ice away from the pipe. I just need enough of a gap for air to escape.
