Like the Eel, the Van Duzen is forecasted for its biggest rise of the year on Sunday, reaching nearly 7,000 cfs on the Grizzly Creek gauge. It was just above 1,750 cfs as of Wednesday afternoon and dropping. It’s highly unlikely it will drop to a fishable level before it starts to rise again on Friday. It will likely take a week of dry weather to drop into shape.
