    If the gate is right before the bridge there are a couple places to park. the above message makes it seem that way. Even if there is no parking there are other ways of getting to that water and it may be less pressured this way.

    I was told its just past the houses. And from my experience yesterday it's visible from the highway.

    I usually fish down from Hazel anyway. No big deal.

    The road has been fucked up for longer than a year. All the holding water in that area has been fucked up for over a decade. It's still bullshit.

    up there this morning. running with 12 to 15 in visibility. the gate is a little ways before the bridge on c post and no parking right at the gate. There should be enough parking for two or three vehicles at the trail entrances near the road.

    I got one hatchery hen (see gallery). I also saw a couple of big ass kings wallow at the surface.

    Just got back from the stilly. Water has dropped a decent bit but its still cloudy. Did seem slightly better than last time.

    A trout took my muddler minnow, but no steelhead.

    Had some time to play and went up to the North Fork today with a friend. Started at Hazel and the river is still very cloudy. 10-12" vis. Drove upriver and can confirm that all the color is coming in at Boulder Creek/River. Went up to Fortson and the water is gin clear and very low. No fish seen

    Just came back from the Stilly. Hooked 2 but could not land them. Water I would say is about 3 feet in visibility. Water still has a little bit of milk to it though. Seeing lots of fish rolling. Oh, and its really low.
