Fly Fishing the McCloud River remains cloudy

Carrie's McCloud Rainbow Turbid McCloud River Below Ash Camp Fly Fishing on the McCloud River remains cloudy as the river continues to suffer from an infusion of silt from Mud Creek.  ShastaTrout fly fishing guides have found limited success on the McCloud with a few fish each day mostly taken on nymphs.  Water clarity at Ash Camp remains less than a foot, at Ah Di Na and the Nature Conservancy Preserve it has increased to perhaps a foot and a half or two feet while on the Bollibokka Club down near Shasta Lake it is a bit over three feet.  One good bit is that not much stealth is required and fishing pressure has been very low so that a few anglers have found some very nice fish, including Carrie who found this big healthy Rainbow while on a trip with local guide Rick Cox.
