    Was going duck hunting this morning, but dawned partly cloudy with no rain!!

    At least, the front blew the smoke away. But we need some moisture for the dogs nose to work!!!

    It's as wet here right now as a cow pissing on a flat rock.

    Looking darker to the west....maybe it will rain. It is duck season after all.

    Gives me hope.

    Nooksack jumped up. Probably not blown out (just saw the N Fork gauge), but on the way up steeply. And I think we're getting significantly more tomorrow.

    Light rain in Moses Lake overnight... streets were still wet this morning at 8am. Sounds like World War II south of I-90.

    Rained pretty good up around North Bend earlier today. Was on the South Fork Sno, but unfortunately wasn't fishing...

    Got report that it is and has been coming down hard out on the coast where my mom was digging clams.

    Never did rain here. Ended up taking a nap in the LaFuma on the deck this afternoon.

    Maybe it will rain tomorrow. Be nice to settle the dust down and get better scenting conditions for the dog.

    I wasn't very far east, but it was coming down hard just west of Cle Elum. I was there from 2:00 to 5:00 and it only stopped for a total of about 15 minutes. A couple of feisty rainbows helped keep me on the river.

    Here in the extreme NE corner of the state it rained for a couple of hours Friday night and was nice during the day on Saturday. Just like Camelot. It started raining again during Saturday night-a soft, gentle soaking rain that we have been desperate for. The smell of the damp forest this morning is just intoxicating after months of dryness.

    I predict that the freshening of the local lakes with a new supply of oxygen will invigorate the fish and improve the bite. I'll test this theory in the coming week.

    We did end up with a few sprinkles last night, but I doubt it was even measurable.

    This morning you can still see the fires smoking up. Hopefully, this next front will result in a little more than sprinkles. At least the humidity recovery, will slow down any new fire starts down low. I was getting kinda worried about the rest of the state being totally wet and the east slope being totally dry.

    It is starting to look good for watching the playoffs while also watching it rain.

    Hopefully, this will be the season ending event for fire season.
