|Crazy High Flow Below NF Trinity|

Well it was fun while it lasted. I watched as the "Storm of the Century" passed through and blow out all the valley rivers and streams. I kept track of the flows and it was pretty fun watching them reach such high flows in such a short amount of time. Looks like there is some snow up in the mountains and my family that's in Quincy said they got over 9'' of snow. It doesn't show signs of stopping as the rains continue to fall every other day until next week? I should probably learn how to fish for winter bass or get more confident at fishing muddy streams because it'll probably be like this for a while.

|2014 Steelhead Report Card|
To fish for steelhead in California you need to purchase a Steelhead Report Card for around $7. It's not much and is more of an entry ticket to fish for one of the greatest freshwater gamefish in the world than a fee. You have to "BEFORE YOU FISH" enter where you are fishing and date it. Once you're done fishing, you indicate how many you caught and kept (if you kept), what kind you caught (hatchery or wild), and worst of all, how many hours you fished.

After a few days of solely tying flies I decide it was time to get out and wet my line. I recently received a new St. Criox Imperial rod to replace the one I broke and I wanted to "break" it in. The weather for the day called for thunderstorms and the previous day was more overcast than rain. I was hoping for more of the same but got a crap ton of water dumped on me while I was out instead. Figures.
