Shasta Trout guide Craig Nielsen attended a meeting last Thursday, July 14th hosted by Cal Trout to discuss flow recommendations for the Pit and McCloud Rivers under relicensing with FERC. There has been a good deal of misunderstanding and misinformation regarding the flows and particularly with Cal Trout, Trout Unlimited (TU) and the Federation of Fly Fisher’s (FFF) joint recommendations. A number of local guides, agency representatives and scientists attended. Cal Trout director Jeff Thompson, Curtis Knight and Drew Braugh discussed the issues, including the current higher than recommended flows on the Pit, The video above helps explain the recommended flows on the McCloud and how they might impact anglers. Craig spent considerable time helping Cal Trout, TU and the FFF access flows in preparation for their recommendation. Hopefully this video will help clear up some of the confusion and misinformation concerning McCloud River flows.
