Is the water coming through the dam really muddy, or just stained. I'm really interested in what it's like above the dam...

Any help would be awesome.

Flyrob Just stained looked at the river yesterday. Talked to a couple of guys that tried fishing broad creek and just said it was super windy didn’t mention the water quality 2 days ago
