Had a fun float on the lower Yuba yesterday. Got on the oars for a while so my friend could cast skwala dries at some really nice rising fish. The river has come back nicely from the scouring that 90,000cfs did to it in the past. Still not quite the same as it was pre 97 flood from what I hear, but it keeps getting better! It was pretty barren a few years back after the most recent flood. Now, it seems like a lot more resident fish and plant and bug life. Hopefully this river can have some sustained stability, if it does it will become one of the better fisheries in the state and not some sterile, gravel chute like it was after the floods.
