  1. Default Rhodes update

    Just a word of warning for those heading out this way. The area is critical, and we need a lot of snow and soft, penetrating rain.

    Mario, what actually happens to the fishing when the water is so low?

    Obviously its very clear, which I suppose would make for skittish fish, but given more fish in less space, doesn't it mean more competition for food (and hence more bites)?

    Also, with the crazy numbers of small fish in the system last season, will the low water not help thin that out a bit?
