Bennett Spring Stream Conditions

The stream is in great shape.  Bennett was up about twenty inches the first of June.  The water is up about three inches currently and it is off color.  This usually keeps the fish from being so picky.  We have a chance of rain starting on Friday for a few days, but we are only supposed to receive scattered showers.     … [Read more...]
