i've been up three times now since the flood. I love the river, post and pre flood. However I enjoyed it more before. I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority on this, but for me it's about what the flood did to the banks, trees, and rocks. It is so hard to get around in some areas and I'm a pretty active hiker. When I go I like to power fish like crazy. I commonly will hike about 3-4 miles just getting around those spots and back again. Spillway is such a beatdown to hike up and down now. The jagged shale and angled wash out make your ankles hate you the next day. However as far as the river goes now there are a lot of new and interesting spots to fish. More fast tail sections, deeper eddys, forget what you know about a 3-4 foot indicator. Either forget an indicator completely or move it way up. Fish were feeding just below surface or way deep two weekends ago. Anyway have a good time Capt. Mac. It is still as pretty as ever. Oh and enter the first park entrance, it will make it easier on getting around.
