Making a trip up and you guys got more rain than we did down south. The Flow bumped quite a bit but wasn’t sure how badly they got blown out. Thanks!

I'm guessing pretty blown. Definitely challenging to wade, if possible. Better know the spots before hand. I was fishing Monday afternoon, quite a few fish.

It's not going t o be pretty. I live on a tributary of the PM and it is at the top of its banks, definitely pumping a lot of water to the PM.

Hmm alright. I’m going to need you to go out and dam up that water :) haha great. I can deal with higher water but clarity is my only worry. Guess I’ll be searching for some tribs to fish Friday if it’s that bad right now. Thanks for the info!

The PM fished good yesterday, high and dirty but fishable, just need to take care when wading.

Sorry riverbob. I meant does anyone have any eyes on the PM. Looking for kings coho and steel. Oh and Browns! Doesn’t look like the river has even crested yet. Wish I knew the area better since they had less rain by the manistee. I only really know tippy dam. Looks like other river accesses down river though

Should we pull the plug on our weekend trip based on the fly water being blown? The BBT report makes it seem like gloom, doom, and dispair. I can adapt to wading challenges but if it’s so fast you can’t be safe around it or land fish that’s another story. It’s a 2 hour drive and I have a hotel reservation for 2 nights. What would you do?

Maybe even hit a pier or the beach

If BBT says it's trashed...
