MOON PHASE (80%)
Waxing Gibbous

Spring 2017 captured 894 passed up 774 spawned 529 shut down till the fall water temp 46 above and below facility. Reduced stocking = fewer fish needed for spawning. Glad i fished late feb-early march fish were spawning then. Water is slill chocolate milk with more heavy rain mid to late next week. Look's like the rest of the spring run will be a bust. O well there is  next spring!

I'm about 2hrs away from the Root but with flows currently at 1350cfs the water is definitely going to be high, fast, and muddy and very, very difficult to fish if at all.  I try to target a cfs of <400cfs, preferably closer to 200.

Will be plenty of fish in the river but with the flows as high as they are will be tuff to get bit. Looks like more rain heading that way.

Do you think it will be worth it this weekend as I have a 6 hour drive or do you think most will be spawned out and heading back to the lake?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.    I just want 1 for Grampa
