Eel Predicted to Rise and Blow

Eel River - South Fork - CA

by Kenny Priest

The South Fork was running at 2,000 cfs as of Wednesday and should be fishable on Thursday and Friday. The river is predicted to rise late Friday afternoon and will likely be blown out for the weekend and into early next week. Depending on how much and where the storms hit next week, it could drop back into fishable shape by late next week or the weekend.
