Hey Pete, ever wonder where the fish go when the water gets like that? I figure they head forthe undercut banks, but sometimes it amazes me they don't get washed downstream and out to sea!

You can't help but wonder, you'd think everything bugs included would all get washed out to sea. You'd think in the smaller freestone creeks which don't offer much cover would really get hammered. We've found fish stranded from time to time in the spring when water levels drop so there are definately casualties. But some how most seem to handle it. Just another miracle of Mother Nature.

Nice pictures! I suspect the creek behind my parents' house is up pretty high right now. It has never reached the house, but it's amazing when its full and moving fast. Stay dry!

My BIL will flyfish some of the little freestones around here after it stops raining, when the are high and muddy and he usually does well. It amazes me the fish find his flies (usually streamers) when the water is like chocolate milk.

My experience has been storms can create some spectacular fishing provided you're not electrocuted in the process...but I've never had much luck in heavily colored water...I generally opt to stay home and tie flies.

I sure hope some of that moisture comes my way. Here in SD we are having a terrible drought which started last spring and hasn't let up. Pond behind our house is almost dry. We have a 20% chance of snow late this week into the weekend. Please keep your fingers crossed for us and try not to get swept away
