Here is part of an E-mail sent to the ODFW yesterday.
Visited Spaulding several days ago. What a disappointment. What used
to be a reservoir with fairly clear water looked like a mud hole with
coffee colored water. However the fish seemed to be OK even though
they had not grown since my last visit about a month ago. The water
and the surrounding reservoir looked so ugly I could see why it was
not getting any fishing pressure. In fact there had not been any
vehicles up there since the last rain (3/4 days ago?).
