With 10 out of the 14 surveys reporting in, there is great news after years of drought in the Golden Trout Wilderness. The March 1 survey for the Kern River basin is at 275% of normal! What great news when we have seen natural lakes dry out in certain parts of the wilderness. If all this snow continues on the average trend, it MAY delay access to the wilderness due to so much snow (i.e. plowing the roads, repairing winter damage to the roads, etc.). There are still two more months of surveys to go before so time will tell. What do you think about this large snow pack? Is too much snow a bad thing?
