The Smith was right around 1,650 cfs on the Jed Smith gauge on Wednesday. Fishing reports have been hard to come by as fishing access is extremely limited. The three access points that remain open to non-commercial boats are the U.S. Forest Service launch at the Forks, Ruby Van Deventer County Park and the Del Norte County boat ramp (Outiffers).
