Melting Mountain Snow Raises Water Levels

The higher than usual temperatures might be bad for forest fires,
but its great for fisherman.
The warm weather is melting some of the mountain snow,
causing higher water levels in rivers and streams than usual, which is good news for fly fishing outfitters.
They have seen a spike in business.
High snow pack levels mean
that even with the snow melt,
there should be plenty left for a great rafting season in the spring.
