The flushing flows have finished and the Beaverhead is settling into its yearly routine. Flows have dropped to around average. We are seeing a drop flushing flows but this is still a new flooding of the river. Until last week average flows were in the neighborhood of 40CFS. This dramatic rise will push tons of food down the river. (White streamers, grey Ray Charles, worms and cranefly larvae) Grasshopper Creek is putting out a lot of mud. Above Grasshopper the river has a green tinge but is still cloudy. This is from Clark Canyon Creek and should clear pretty quickly.
Everything is settling down on the Beaverhead and this is already the best place in the area to escape runoff.
