    Anybody know if the Cow cleared up any during this past week?
    Thx.

    Thanks Steve, thought that might be the case.
    Heavy runoff into a low Riffe Lake has caused this before. Can be weeks and weeks before it clears. Just changes one's tactics a bit.
    Any idea what the visibility is now. A week ago I'd have guessed 2 to 3 ft at best.

    I was there last Friday It was soup. Called mike a few days later and said the vis was at 3 feet. I noticed he caught a Steelhead yesterday. So it must be clear enough to fish
