The River was Headed in the Right Direction

Eel River - Fortuna, CA

by Kenny Priest

The river was headed in the right direction, but yesterday’s rain put the main stem back on the rise. It was just under 24,000 cfs on Tuesday, but it now predicted to peak at nearly 50,000 on the Scotia gauge on Thursday morning. It needs a solid 10 days of dry weather before it will get close to fishable.
