For Your Information - Sounding The Alarm: New Melones Could Go Dry

With recent rains filling the State reservoirs and the above average snowpack in the Sierra, Governor Jerry Brown declared California's three-year drought officially over on March 31 of this year. While the "state of emergency" may be over, the problem is not going away. Anyone who has lived in the Valley for the last decade knows that next year could see a return to below normal rainfalls and snow.

Tight Lines - High Water Tactics

Due to the extremely wet winter we had, most of the streams are running cold, fast and extremely full. The recent hot spell has begun to melt the huge snow pack with a vengeance and the rivers are boiling. This was one of the wettest years on record and the melting snow is creating extremely dangerous conditions. Usually at this time of year the snow run off has peaked and stream levels have begun to recede to normal summertime levels. This year, however, nature may not be cooperating with your summer vacation plans. Major Sierra Rivers are roaring with flows ...
