Did anyone make it to Crane for opening weekend, was wondering how the snow pack was around the Quinn River area?

There is some spots of snow in the Quinn CG, but most of it can be avoided and a good number of sites available. There has been no maintenance at all in the CG or roads in and out of the boat ramp. A TON of blowdown everywhere, including all over the loop thru the CG. You can navigate most of it, but some sites are covered in blowdown. Bring a chainsaw and clear one out.

The fishing has been very slow, water high and pretty cold due to some stormy cold weather last few days. I've scratched out a few fishing tiny flies, but fish are not grabby quite yet, very slight takes. Just a reminder if you're bonking those muddy tasting fish, no wild fish retention as per new regs.
