The river has great clarity right now – 3.5-4 ft of visibility. There are definitely fish in the river; some good reports lately. We will be on all weekend and give you a more in depth report. The river is flowing at 700 CFS; at this juncture that is 40% lower than normal. In the past week the river dropped over 200 CFS :((
