Beaver Bend – Lower Mountain Fork washed away again!

From the GRTU website

 

“Some news for those that visit the Lower Mountain Fork River in Oklahoma. The gates are now open more than they were in May to make room for extremely high amounts of water in the reservoir.

The gates were opened this AM and the very fast and high flows have claimed the Beaver Bend Fly Shop which was loosed from it’s foundation/pylons and was seen floating away by its owner, Eddie, about 4 hours ago. Time will only tell what other damage will occur, but the park is currently closed. Hopefully, damages will be kept to a minimum at our next closest year-round closest trout water.”

Very sad! Several of us were just up there Dec 3-6. There were still trying to recover from the floods in May.
