Mad River Fishing Report

Mad River - Arcata, CA

by Kenny Priest

The Mad was still on a slight rise on Wednesday, but predicted to drop through the weekend. Unfortunately, it reached nearly 13.5 feet, so it has a long way to go. With Ruth Lake being full, it will take a lot of dry weather for it to drop back down to bait-fishable levels and color.
