    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.
