North Coast: , by Drew Griffith: The Coast: 3 stars

The rains that were forecast to show up came and delivered. All systems on California's North Coast saw significant rises over the weekend and the roller coaster continues with more wet weather on tap. With so many variables in weather and flows finding the perfect conditions can be fleeting. 

You can study graphs and projected rises compared to rainfall percentages until the cows come home. Your best bet is to get out when you can and forget the forecast. The fishing has been amazing at times, and slow during others, but for swinging flies that's par for the course. All it takes is one. 

I'm looking forward to transitioning into winter steelhead in the coming weeks. They're already starting to show up on the coast with the runs of salmon. Usually Thanksgiving is the unofficial start of the season, and with this next big push of rain it looks like it'll start off with a bang!
