Diving the Mad River – Part 1

MR 270

Recently I had the pleasure of tagging along with a summer steelhead survey on one of the most rugged portions of the Mad River. There is a natural migration barrier on the Mad about a mile below Deer Creek where only in ideal conditions can winter steelhead get up river. So for this first stretch we didnt expect to see any adult fish, though small resident trout were numerous as we swam down river.

    1. A good question. The Mad River is major river in northern California. It drains through Trinity and Humboldt County before draining to the ocean near Arcata, Ca. The pictures are in Humboldt County.
