High Water Tips From A Guide

With more rain in the forecast, it's looking like the local streams are well above normal flows for the near future. The East Branch is particularly blown out (see above). But maybe there's still hope. Jeff Wilkins has just posted some excellent tips and I recommend reading his post before you write off fishing this week. The most valuable part of his post is the informative visual guide to reading the water- even in regular conditions. This is the kind of insight that comes from experience and it's precious information for us novices. Also a reminder that hiring a guide is a great investment, they can teach you a lot in an afternoon.
