High water



The warm weather and ran over the last few days as definitely done a number on the rivers and streams. If you have not already guessed it, everything is flooded. The good news is that water flows have pretty much crested and is already starting to settle back down to a good fishing level. With weather patterns turning back to normal freezing temperatures this will help to speed the process up. The water may have spoiled some fishing plans his week. However this blast of high water is just what is needed to keep the winter fishing going. Before the high water hit Oak orchard river was fishing quite well for this time of the year. Oak Orchard river has received its legendary but limited Christmas run off Coho salmon. Plus the normal mix of Browns and steelhead. Hopefully we will be able to get back to fishing by possibly the end of the week. Sandy Creek has already started to settle back down from this past high water event. The way Sandy is looking right now I would give Sandy about three to four days.
