What began as a nice little 10 inch raise on Friday ended up being approximately 20 inches of water by this morning . The river is also very dirty so the big fly’s are coming out . Lucky for us in the McNamee area with our many islands and a number of pools that fish best in high water , this big water does not kill the fishing completely . As soon as the dirt clears out a bit and the water begins to drop we will be into fish . Our 28 foot cedar strip jet propelled canoe is a real asset for getting anglers to the best spots and our guides know all the tricks on how to adapt to these conditions . This is exactly what we like to see coming into the fall season , high water , cool temps and a long range weather forecast that looks like it was written by a lodge owner .
