Density

There is a section of of a local river that has apparently 10.77 fish per mile while flowing at about 1,500 cfs. That's about 0.00718 fish per cfs volume unit. For some perspective, the Bighorn River tailwater has something like 6,000 fish per mile and flows at about 2,300 cfs for a total of 2.076 fish per volume unit, or about 300 times the fish density of this place.
But here's what one of the 11 per mile looks like:
More like Mont-Zealand. Photo courtesy Will Jordan.
Saturday's the small-stream opener - it only gets better from here. Cheers!

Looks a lot like the fish in the Bighorn river. ;)
