If there was ever a California river to fly under the radar, it's the well known but poorly understood High Flow section of the Feather. A compliment to the better known Low Flow section, the High Flow zone is a steelheader's dream, and an incredible place to stick fish and work on your technique before moving onto more challenging rivers. High numbers of adult and halfpounders hit the net on the High Flow, and the easy access from the levee roads that parallel the river make access easy.
