McCloud River Fly Fishing Spoiled by Mud Creek

Mud Creek silting the McCloud River below the dam McCloud River Fly Fishing Guides are bummed!

On Sunday the Lower McCloud River turned the color of coffee and  cream spoiling the fly fishing.  Water at Ah Di Na is less turbid because of contributions of clear water from tributaries, including Hawkins Creek at Ash Camp.  Clarity at Ah Di Na is currently about a foot and half and is marginally fishable according to local guide Rick Cox.

Mud Creek flowing into McCloud Reservoir Heavy storms last week caused Mud Creek to rise significantly and colored McCloud Reservoir while local guide Fred Gordon was on it.  He was able to observe the plume work it’s way toward the dam which empties into the Lower McCloud.  Hopefully it will clear soon.  Feel free to drop us a line for the latest conditions.

On a separate note the collapsed footbridge on the Klamath River has been removed and boat passage has been restored.
