    If this rain slows down, I might head up there tonight or tomorrow to fish.

    How's the Public Mining Area? Can a guy use a small highbanker/dredge setup there?

    Yes, I was up there over the 4th with a high banker and found flour gold. There is a guy by the name of Kim set up on the gravel bar ny cottonwood creek. He's a nice enough guy and will be willing to show his setup. He is processing lots of material and finding small size gold.

    If you set up on the cut bank on cottonwood creek be very careful of rocks, I set up there and had several large rocks come down on our operation.

    The stories of gold that Ive heard are mainly from suction dredging the gravel bars... it seems to be spotty. We processed about 15 yards and didn't find enough to hold our interest. We did find gold, its just very fine gold...
