Peak Runoff 20-30 days early

Looks like a short, big season for us this year...

Get it while you can!

Spring runoff to be fast and furious |

Yeah, it's pretty crazy down here too. The only positive I can come up with is that the caddis hatch on the Animas, which is usually unfishable due to runoff, will be good. Put away the rubber and pull on the waders. Oh well...

yeah im pretty sure our peak in this neck of the woods was yesterday. the gunny hit 3700ish and the east almost hit 3000....everything is off by a couple hundo now, and with the cooler temps the rest of the this week i imagine everything will start its (hopefully) slow descent into low water.
