Thanks go out to the Wood River Land Trust for coming up with, hopefully, a permanent and successful solution to the minimal flows on the Big Wood River below Magic reservoir.  In the past, by late October the water flow below Magic Reservoir was not enough to sustain the trout population and with the current plan on trying to maintain 15 cfs of released water (there is also a minimal amount of seepage flow as well) the approx. 3 mile section below Magic could really become an incredible fishery.  This also serves as a great example of a "win win" when it comes to Idaho's anachronistic water laws.
