    I know that we need all the rain we can get here in S.CA. but I'm getting a little burned out on it.
    I just hope the reservoirs get their levels raised a bit from this.
    I also hope the snow is falling in the Sierras at least at the rate we are getting rain, more if possible.

    I didn't say I didn't want it.
    Just that I was getting tired of it.
    We here in S. Ca. have been living with drought conditions for about 10 years now. Any rain we can get is good.
    It's just that we are used to having a break between storms for the sun to come out and the rain to soak in.
    Its been raining for 5 days now and it looks like at least 3 more to come.

    :0a27: with linz,
    We are getting our share here in the Bay Area as well. It may good in the long run for the waters that we fish but ":angry:D@m"!

    What ever happen to the old saying "The Clam Before The Storm"? :0a14:

    At lease we use to have a clam day in between so we can still get out on the water to wet a line.

    Now with all of this rain, all we have to do to wet a line is hold our line out of our windows at home.

    "I Just Got To Get Out There and Do Some Fishing" / and then (& only then) I will be OK - I Guest?

    Take it easy,

    I took a drive to check out some prospecting sites yesterday, this was between Coursegold and Oakhurst , they got lots of snow this last week this is the left over, I'm sure they got more last night and will be getting more this week

    I have been on some rivers and creeks this last week, they are all holding water but are staying fairly low its going to take a lot of water to fill those reservoirs up, a lot more then we're getting. Personally I like it a bit dry it's easier to prospect but need water for dredging which I am headed out to do right now some where on the San Joaquin River between Friant and Herndon. During 1940-42, $196,977 worth of gold was recovered from sand and gravel processed for use in building Friant Dam on San Joaquin River just guessing theres a few more ounces they missed where I'm headed to ( private property ) . Also the spot I'm going to is full of bass and catfish when the waters higher so I'll get to see what the lay out if now that the water is really low, when the waters up I can go back and know where channels in the river are and bank layouts.
