Fantastic news!!
HFEs in the fall have never made any sense what so ever to me.
1. There is nothing "natural" about a high flow event in the fall. Peak runoffs occur in the late spring.
2. I know there is total disregard for the trout fishery however why go out of your way to destroy it? Think of the most detrimental thing you could do (short of turning off the water or poisoning) and you would come up with a HFE in the fall. Going into the winter months, the trout depend on the food sources that have been getting established all summer. The fall HFE flushes out the grass beds and thin silt layers that hold the winters supply of midge larvae and crustaceans. The result: poor fish in the spring going into the spawn.

Looking forward to next year already!!
