The Santa Ana winds (also known as Santana winds) are strong, extremely dry offshore winds that characteristically sweep through in southern California and northern Baja California in late fall into winter.
The Buffalo Valley winds (also known as Drift Stoppers) are strong, extremely gusty upstream winds that characteristically sweep through Buffalo Valley and in an upstream direction on the Caney Fork in late fall and when you least expect them.

Mark R and I went back to the Caney for some fishing of our own. We fished the stretch from Happy to Betty's Island and caught several fish. Mostly bows and some brook trout. The brookies are as colorful as any fish I've seen and this includes the wild brookies in the Smoky's.
There wasn't much action in the deeper holes and we found no fish willing to eat by the structure. However, there seemed to be fish on every shoal and we finally managed one brown at the end of the day. Overall this was a decent day on the river.
