As long as we get some fall rain they should be fine.

I got lucky because all of our stream restoration work and dam removal work is falling to August - November, and so far flows are nice and low which is important to our work. But it sure has been very dry for a long time. Flows remain above average at least, and that's due to a year and a half of heavy rains. Electro fishing results are showing that we have had two very good spawning years the last two years, so let's hope we have a 3rd straight. After all, we had 7 lousy years, and wild trout numbers plunged for a time.
