Mad Creeks

MR 227

More hiking in larger tributaries to the Mad River. This one drains to Bug Creek. This stream has tremendous energy in periods of heavy rains and snowmelt. As result, the channel is constantly scouring out a new path, though near these waterfalls there is not much left to scour. Here the water is periodically re-directed by build-ups of large boulders and logs which only move under heavy flow conditions. There are rumors that some of these larger streams where planted by DFG in past with rainbow trout, but I haven’t found any fish up in these steams yet.
