Shannon: Wow, that looks bad! Send that moisture back this way, last I heard Wyoming was at 84% snow pack, so we definitely need more moisture, just not all at once like you are getting.

Having seen the devistation that prior floods have caused and the subsuquent loss of fish I'd say this could be a difficult siustion for the wild fish population to survive...... 2003 & 2004 floods on the Piegon headwaters ...... 2003 flood on the headwaters of Hazel Creek.... 2011 flood of Straight Fork ....... we could be in for some slow fishing come spring..... I fish "Luftee", Bradley, Straight Fork, Noland and Deep creek heavily during the warmer weather...... We'll have to wait and see..........
