Trout Stream Opener

The trout stream opener last weekend was great…for kayakers.  The abundant spring runoff made it a tough go for anglers.  Most streams were running very high with low water clarity.

A week ago I listed a few of the streams I thought might be fishable despite the high water levels.  One of those was the North Fork of the Feather River above Chester.

Let’s face it, the season opener usually means high flows and off-color water. With so much rain and snow this year, it is likely to be worse than normal.
