    Capt. Nemo, first time I went there was 2016, but it was mid week before Labor Day in Sept. Also I don't use moss.

    Ben Armstrong, it's probably best to have a healthy sense of respect for the Dictitorial Never relenting Rigime.


    Edited to add, I got a nice photo of two fellows using a Tee Dee sluice under the overlook. They forgot their shovel. I felt bad for them and wanted to stick around to help them out and sluice some more myself but I was on a schedule. Can't find the photo or I'd post it, pretty cool with the overlook in the background. And yes, I've found gold under the overlook.

    Here's some pics of the gold you'll nail there. Note the heavy gray reidite sand in the second pic.

    With all the rain you might want to wait till it dries out some. I was panning in Plum when it was flowing about average and it started raining. Creek turned brown and came up about 2"-4" in about an hour of medium-light rain.

    I'd rather it be too dry to sluice than to have to try and get pay dirt out of brown rushing water. There is always enough water to pan.

    If you call the ranger station before you leave home they can probably tell you if the creek is high or low.

    Thanks, good advise! I would not want to drive 4 hours only to find out the water is too high. I Probably won't have time anyways for another few weeks. Hopefully the rain will have simmered down by then. In the Madison area it just dumped a bucket a little while ago.
