Currently as of Saturday January 19 the Russian is dropping after the storm that produced 9.5" of rain in the hills North of Guerneville. We are looking at a high muddy river but the good news is long term forecasts are calling for a drying spell starting on Monday and could last through the weekend and maybe longer. This would be great news for the Russian since it will give it some time to drop and clear up a bit. My fishing forecast is calling for plunking conditions to start by the end of the week and drift or lure fishing by the weekend. Were are moving into prime steelhead time so there should be plenty of fish throughout the entire system when it comes into shape. Give us a call at Kings for an up to the minute report 707-869-2156.
