So - we've seen it for ourself. The upper stretch from BFW is indeed a little scary. The large dam up top (less than 1/2 km upstream from BFW) is indeed playing havoc - and there are a few dams that are causing some serious overflow and silting up top. We took a little tour saturday with Mr. Dell - and he expressed a little concern over the state up top. There are a few really nice new pools as a result - but the overwhelming concern is the level of silting up top.


Looks like a july dam pulling trip is in the cards.


on the up side - the portion below BFW looks good - but we didn't go down to the lower 761 bridge section...


Small black stones are hatching - as are mays. A few surface takes - but nothing looked at our flies...


Saw a few browns swimming - and Michael spotted a little pike (unexpected on my part - would tried valiantly to tease it...)


Pretty place though - well worth the trip once a month or so. :)
