How is water level in creeks at Monache Meadows
« on: August 29, 2012, 03:46:48 PM »
It may not be East side ... Probably not West side either ...

I want to go to Monache Meadow this month but I am concerned with the dry year that the creeks may be trickles and not decent for fishing.  Can someone who has been up there this year let me know how the creeks are?

The wife has a bad leg and is coming which means that I cannot go on a long hike (short hike no more than 5-6 miles RT would be fine) to get to better fishing water (even though my son and I would love to get more remote by doing a longer day hike).

Any suggestions for where to fish in Monache Meadows with the above limitations?


Thanks

Gary C.

I have not talked to anyone that has been up to MM this year. My guess would be that the river is very low and pretty warm right now. According to Dream Flows the SFK is flowing just over 3QFS per second in Onxz.

Sorry for the late reply, but we just returned from the area and the lack of water is evident everywhere in the region.
