The river is finally falling and it should be able to get ramps open mid-next week. As of right now I expect to be rolling by the weekend. Extended flooding like this is usually good for catfishing and water temps say the fish are here. We will be hitting the ground running this year with […]

Our flood is already crested and on the way down. The big expected flood was really nothing coming in at just over 34′. Things have really cooled off this week so the water slowly falls but there is really no rise in water temperature. For now things look really good on the water level front […]

Things have been changing fast this week. The snowpack has shrunken and there is good runoff starting up. The river is still sealed up but it won’t be long now. Based on what I am seeing in the fields, I have a feeling the flooding won’t be near as bad as they predicted it may […]
