South Fork Eel River Report

The higher reaches of the South Fork fished on Monday, but the fishing wasn’t red hot. The lower reaches were green on Wednesday, but not many boats and not many fish reported. Thursday will be it for a few days as the next round of storms will blow it back out. Predicted to reach 3,500 cfs on Friday night, but could be down to a fishable level by Sunday. Next week should be prime conditions.
