Well with the opener a few days away someone had to start a thread any one head down that way, see anything? Last year the opener was pretty good.
Post from the private Journal Below...
Bruce visited the Russian River on Saturday doing a bit of preseason scouting. Water conditions are beautiful, up a bit above normal. A couple of pack rafters were taking a trip down the Russian....good to do it NOW and not when a thousand sharp hooks are flying.
On a somewhat discouraging note, he didn't see any reds in the Russian clearwater but only went as far as the mouth (1st pic) and didn't check the Sanctuary or below. Last year at this time the river was plugged with fish. A few days can and do make a difference but we are getting close to the opener June 11. Hmmm. I'll be checking before the opening bell too.
Anyone hear of anything different?
