Default Drought (TR)


We're now in the driest 8 month period since 1895, and my rivers are slowing to a warm stagnant crawl. My nearest river is now down below 1 CFS, and another that was too high to fish well last summer is below 10 CFS.

A drought in a river basin is a challenge.

A drought in fishing time is maddening.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
