So after having my trolling motor "walk away" at Cherry Creek a few weeks back, I was out fishing Chesseman this last weekend and at one point, left my spot to look for a spot to cross. I came around a boulder and saw a guy in the middle of the rapids clutching his dog and a log. His girlfriend/wife was trying to help him but he was too far and he couldn't get to shore without being swept into the rapids. I ran over and long story short, I took my waders off and fed him the end with a stick, then she grabbed me and we pulled him and the dog in. Everyone was safe in the end. Seems the dog decided to wade out a bit too far and got swept away and he dove in after her.
The bummer, in taking off my waders, one fell into the river and got swept downstream. The girlfriend/wife asked after if I wanted help looking for my shoe, I just chuckled and said "it's long gone".
So what happens to them? Do they sink? Wash up on shore? Get caught in a screen somewhere?
