It was a record setting, drought-busting water year for the Sierra Nevada in 2017…and it doesn’t appear to be over yet!

All that wet stuff is amazingly good news for stricken California. So much so that on April 7, Gov. Jerry Brown officially (and finally!) declared an end to the drought emergency for the vast majority of California.
Now, let’s hope we can follow it up with several more good winters and we’ll start to see our fisheries rebound!
