The main Eel has been in fishable shape since Sunday but that was changing Tuesday. Flows were predicted to reach 7,600 cubic feet per second Thursday morning. Dry weather beginning Thursday, will keep it on the drop through the weekend, but another rise is forecast for Monday. It may fish on the weekend. Boats drifting early last week from the forks down were getting two to four fish per trip.
