The Mad was just turning green on Tuesday morning, according to Justin Kelly of Eureka’s RMI Outdoors. He said, “The river was bait fishable on Tuesday, but it was starting to get dirty in the afternoon. Fishing has been a little slow, most of the action has been right at the hatchery. There have been some caught below, but not as many. Looks like it will be brown through Saturday but it might start to drop back in on Sunday. Next week should be prime.” Flows were at ,5,000 cfs on Wednesday afternoon and starting to level off. It’s also forecast to drop quickly, and should be green sometime early next week.
