According to Justin Kelly of RMI Outdoors, the river never really blew out as predicted on Saturday. “The river looked really good above the North Fork over the weekend,” said Kelly. “With the cold temperatures, I think we got a lot more snow in the hills than rain. The fishing was decent over the weekend — there seems to be a few more fish around now. We’re starting to see some downers but there are still fresh ones to be had. A couple small rises are predicted for this week but there’s a good chance the water will be green by the weekend.” Another bump in flows is predicted for Sunday night that will likely turn the river muddy.
