Just a reminder to everyone that while Waterline is reporting the flow at a normal 335 cfs, that only pertains to what is being released. We have to take into account the the rain and remember to use caution as always when fishing the river. The extra run off has picked the fishing up considerably in the fast water areas like the ballpark, and while the river is still very fishable, you may not be able to cross in areas that have been accessible all season. There are plenty of fish throughout the river and we hope everyone has fun and above all stays safe!
Update for the morning:
The normal, fast flowing sections of the river are apparently very rough conditions. There are a lot of Kings moving throughout and the guys that are hooking up have said it has been crucial all morning to have enough weight on your line. Always use caution when walking the river.
If you think the main stretch of the river might be a little to much right now, think about heading to the creeks. North and South Sandy have been giving us good reports and the tribs seem to be puffed up enough from the rain to hold fish
