As of December 13, 2020

Leg #1 - November 8, 2020 Results

A mild day with temperatures in the low 70’s.

Good numbers of fish were in the river systems due to high water events two weeks ago.  The Legacy streams were running clear and lacked sufficient flow.  The fishing was good but the catching was tough.

A total of 17 fish 24”s or greater were checked in.  The anglers who grinded it out managed to put fish on the board.
