The main stem is in great shape and holding a nice shade of green. Boat pressure was fairly heavy over the weekend, and could get worse as other coastal rivers are dropping out. Boats are averaging one to four fish per trip. There are some nice adults in the mix and some runbacks have shown up. There’s also a good number of half-pounders around. Flows are predicted right around 2,000 cfs by Saturday.
