Today we stocked, with the help of a lot of friends, about 800 good sized browns into the Bears Den section of the Millers River. The river was running about 1100cfs which made it great for our float stocking efforts which will insure good distribution of these fish. Six miles of remote river was stocked. With the holdover population we should have a great Spring and Summer on this great river.
Special thanks to Dan and Tom and their crew from Harrison Anglers which made the float stocking possible.
The river is beginning to drop after the heavy rains of earlier this week. Look for great fishing next week. Also, the lower C&R (Wendell Depot) will be float stocked next Friday. BTW, there are reliable reports of very heavy hendrickson hatches on the lower river. With the seasonal caddis blizzards we could be into heavy dry fly fishing over the next week.
Hopefully I'll brave the currents on Sunday and give you a report. If you head out to the Millers bring some heavy black WB's. They work in this high water.
