The pine creek race is the best thing that fibark offers and we all need to make sure and thank our local fisherfolk and the wildlife end of CPW for the low water this fibark!
It looks like the fishermen are getting what they want - less people on the river as they have said is their goal.. Sad to see the first casualty of "the year of the fish" is the pine creek race. Right now we would have 700 cfs in the Ark if it were not for the power exerted by fishermen over flows.
Sad to see the fishermen have the power force the flows so low that they can in turn ruin what has become a gem of fibark... So again make sure to thank the fishermen and spread the word of why the water is so low so that we may be able to change the water water is released on the Ark to prevent this from happening in the future.
A big thanks to Phil, Marco, Hixton, all at cks and the rest that made this race what it is. I have no doubt that in the future the pine creek race will return.
Yea I am sad to see that the "year of the fish" killed the pine creek race in 2012......
