Quick Conditions Update

Coastal Steelhead Report -

The Bad News: The Russian River was running over 5,000 cfs* as of the 19th, and we've just been getting more rain since. (*5,000 cfs not "fishable" - that's a whole 'lotta water...)

The Good News: The other coastal streams such ast he Gualala and Novarra should clear quickly and will be fishable much sooner. (And, we all know that we do need the rain!)

Rivers should be in good shape by the first week of March. So, this is the week to go through your gear so that you don't waste any fishing time as the river conditions improve. Check your fly lines for cracks and any degradation in the backing or connections. Replace your leaders and either sharpen your hooks or tie some more flies!

Anglers should also keep an eye on Tomales Bay for the Perch starting in March.

We are continually monitoring conditions through the most recent storms, so feel free to call the shop for the most recent reports.

Tight Lines!
