Inland fisher here. Fishing was quite good in the tribs for a few days following each of the major rains we've had, but it's been tough (pretty close to dead for new fish) when the rivers drop back to normal flows. Last time we had a really good run (2014), the fishing was really good in both tidewater and the tribs for most of the season (not just after significant rains). This has been my best season since 2014, but it hasn't been near as good as 2014 was. My observations lead me to believe the forecast was high (if not hugely).

Would be interesting to see how the hatcheries are doing on egg take. That might give us a better idea of just how many fish came up with the early rain than my anecdotal accounts.
