Yet another rain-pocalypse has come through, but we dodged quite a bullet! The West Branch has come up just about 2000 cfs, but is already heading down, with decent clarity. The sudden influx of water shouldn’t affect the hatches TOO much, however wading is yet again UNSAFE. Not to put another ‘you should have been here yesterday’ post up, but you should have been here yesterday. TONS of bugs, many fish finally starting to rise, and several nice fish caught – I will post some pics a bit later today, so check back later!
