Fishing Conditions

May 25, 2018

 This river is pumping a serious amount of water right now and is only on the rise. It is up above 5000 CFS. We have not had a first hand report from over in this direction, but it is most likely muddy and unfishable. If you do head this way, be extremely careful as this river can be very unforgiving when flows are high.
