Re: fly fishable from bank and or wading CFS
Don't forget when you fish down stream first it might be easy(er) but turn around and with a heavy CFS stream and try to get home after 3 hours of fishing it is factors harder and possibly dangerous.
When you walk upstream the pressure on your chest changes things and sometimes makes the water run over the big hole in the top. :^)
Not that I have experienced this before but I was spooked a bit after wading downstream with somewhat ease and then only to discover my trip back home was not as fun.. and the excitement really sucked...
Also, ask a local guide. They will usually tell you what the MAX CFS are for them to take a client out. It is a real good rule of thumb to trust what they say even if you think it is conservative. There are other day's to fish.
