Mad River Update

Mad River - Arcata, CA

by Kenny Priest

According to Justin Kelly of Eureka's RMI Outdoors, the Mad was fishable on Sunday, but has since blown out. He said, "There were a few steelhead caught last weekend, both wild and hatchery. I didn’t see or hear of any big ones caught, most were in the four to five pound range. Once the river drops and is fishable again, it should be game on for steelhead."
