     I couldn't help but respond to Emelia's comment below, "Since there 
isn't much logging going on in the basin below the dam these days, as 
far as I know".........While it's true the Feds are relatively inactive, 
Sierra Pacific Industries is relentlessly clear cutting in the Rush 
Creek, Big Browns Creek, Little Browns Creek, Indian Creek, Readings 
Creek, Weaver Creek, etc., drainages (as well as the upper South Fork). 
An over-flight of the area is truly an eye opener.    Bob Morris
