Fishing has slowed way down on the Mad

by Kenny Priest

According to Justin Kelly of Eureka’s RMI Outdoors, fishing has slowed way down on the Mad. “The river is super low but still has some color,” said Kelly. “There are fish spread throughout the river but the majority are up near the hatchery.” Flows were down to 330 cubic feet per second as of Wednesday. Minimum flow is 200 cfs at State Route 299 bridge.
