The river has been rising with the recent snow and rain. Combine that with the start of runoff and its off color and starting to make you choose your wading paths carefully as the power of the water steadily rises. Eric was in town for a visit this weekend and we headed out early, driving through the rain and snow to get to the canyon trail head. Buggers and streamers were the order of the day. The fish were taking the big stuff so we were happy to oblige and ended up having a great time working the slower water for browns taking respite from the building runoff.
