    i have been staring at graphs and charts for the past 3 days and the fuckers keep changing. One day 100% chance of rain, the next...wellllll....flip a coin at the percentage of rain.

    I have come to this conclusion. Fuck it. Im going. What will be, will be. I might just go on twilight tours and stare at the ocean. But somethings going to come into shape if I have to swing chocolate milk.

    LOL Jmills. I'm glad to see some of the changes in the graphs (river levels) and weather reports. I'm just playing it by ear. We've already had a few guys make alternate plans. But I'm not going there for beachcombing or twilight. LOL. But after the storms could find some nice glass floats. :)

    At 5190 and climbing. Came up 1100cfs in just a few hours. So as of right now, on my end, I'm calling the Hoh Down a wash. No way it'll be in shape at this point by Thursday. I know alot of guys are already fleeing to other rivers (which sound like they are possibly blowing out too). So I'll start refunding monies to those who paid tonight. Sucks, but it is what it is. Isn't my first Hoh trip that has washed out (it's my second one this year already in fact).

    So if you paid for food, I'll put up another post in the food thread if you want details on reimbursement.

    It's not better days Matt, it's just luck of the draw. You're talking coming spring in the rainforest. Some days you get a ton of rain, some days you get none. Just so happens this year we got a ton. :(

    Blow out that is, thought it was obvious. See how much wind is too much in the stillwater section. I've rarely been "blown" off a lake, I usually just adjust how I fish it and still manage to do well. Granted some days are harder than others but as we all know wind affects how we fish rivers as well.

    7600 and rising. Hope those that brave it and keep their plans for the peninsula rivers stay safe, go high and find some soft water somewhere in the side tribs. Hope the contingent of guides can get back on the river soon and keep living the dream.

    ...and 8480 after dinner and bedtime routine for the girls. No idea where I'll be fishing this weekend, but it likely will NOT be the Hoh.

    Mother Nature just don't like you people. The two years I showed up it snowed. Hell, if I want snow I can just stay here in March. Also much better fishing. But this morning it is 44 degrees out. Very warm for this time of the year.

    Have a nice day
