The Wildcat (South Branch) is very fishable right now. Water clarity is excellent with just a slight green stain. Water level is definitely above the summer lows, but I would say showing no affects from the recent heavy rains of the past month. I know the forecast has some precipitation, so that is all subject to change. Just wanted to throw it out there that if you were waiting for conditions to become fishable, wait no more.
BTW, I still had the olive/white clouser tied on from the other day (still do in fact) and she didn't let me down. I'm not switching flies until I get shut out or lose it to a log/rock/innocent bystander/etc.

Well i wound up goin Sunday morning. The water was a bit higher then normal, but very fishable. I brought my dog with and should have known better. The dog of course had much more sense then me, who was standing inthe middle of the creek with the rain coming down not even getting a bite. She decided it was time to go weather I was ready to go or not. I was only able to fish about an hour and it was my first time on this section of creek, so I spent more time making sure my footing was ok and making sure there were no new deep spots then fishing.
