Lower Yuba River Update 2/4/2019 - Blown!!!


Reported on Monday Febuary 4th at 10:40am - The parade of storm systems spinning into Northern California has greatly effected the river conditions with higher flows and turbidity. The projected river forecast is calling for flows to be between 5 and 7,000 cfs by tomorrow morning. Englebright will probably spill over as the reservoir is at 96% of capacity. 


Deer creek continues to rise and fall with each systems that plows through. With low snow levels last night and tonight into Tuesday, there will be more runoff in the local micro watersheds that feed into the tributary's of the North, Middle, and South forks of the Yuba. All that water collecting together for their final flow down the Lower Yuba River, and into the Feather River.


I'm looking forward to days like the picture above, but it might be a while before the river has optimum conditions again. We'll just have to wait and see. Make the most of this down time by tying flies, cleaning lines, organizing gear, and reading up on a particular aquatic insect, or a certain technique for future outings. If you have any questions about the Lower Yuba River, or want to get on my calendar for 2019, just give me a call at 530.228.0487, or shoot me an email at baiocchistroutfitters@yahoo.com
