    Well as of todays flow charts :eek:

    This should help a bunch next week, IF, we don't get anymore rain over the weekend.

    Was looking at those flows earlier this morning; most river came up more than predicted (the Sauk especially took a significant jump).

    May help with the in-river salmon and steelhead fishing but not necessarily good news for those of us the like chasing sea-run cutthroat. Once the rivers are charged with rain (such as what happen yesterday) it only takes a weekly storm or so to wash out the cutthroat season.

    That's true Curt, but man they were so low it was awful, and this will cool 'em down a bit too. But I'm ready for the salmon, steelhead, and Bulls to get going.

    It's always a hit or miss as far as Washington rivers are concerned when it rains. You don't ever get a little rain it's always a gully washer.

    The water clarity is bad, but the fishing is great. Pink season is a blast. My son is always excited to fish( just turned 13 yesterday), he was over today messing with the gear, getting ready for another tug of war this weekend.
