Spring Flush 3/22/10-3/26/10

The spring flush is scheduled to begin early Monday morning the 22nd of March. The BuRec will release 4000cfs daily and return it to 500cfs within a span of a few hours. By noon the water is typically back to 500cfs. The flush will continue until its conclusion on Friday morning the 26th of March.

Trent and I field a bunch of calls with folks wanting to know when the flush will happen. My biggest concern with these calls is that prospective Grey Reef anglers are shooting for being on the water during the flush. In the spring this isn't a solid concept. We won't book trips on the first couple of days of the spring flush because we have had tough conditions in the past...not always, but we don't want to risk it. We are very confident in the fishing by the end of the week. If I were coming I wouldn't plan on being here for the couple days of the spring flush (fall flush is an entirely differnt story). The fishing has been awesome before the flush the past couple years...probably even better than after?
