The rain over the past couple days finally put some water in the main stem Eel. Flows went from 1,500 cfs to 3,600 cfs by Wednesday afternoon. It’s predicted to continue to rise, reaching 4,500 cfs by Thursday. It was off color on Wednesday, and may not fish prior to the weekend. More rain is in the forecast starting Saturday, and flows are predicted to hit 8,000 cfs by Monday. It will likely need at least a week of dry weather before it’s fishable again.
