    That was pretty grim. Ha I just wanted to be popular and post like everyone else, plus I am at work and not were I want to be (in bed or on the water). Who thinks up this working on the weekends b.s. anyhow, I want to meet that idiot.
    Yippy I contributed!

    It's Big Stick.... I'm telling you. I know most of you won't understand but some of you guys must visit the dark side from time to time.



    As for weather reports, keep 'em to yourself. Or just PM those that seem to be interested. Flooding in Washington.... Noooooo.... Weather is vital to fly fishing. Weather is actually vital to every living thing on earth. But if I had read the weather reports I may have stayed off the river this morning. That wouldn't have been a good choice. Check out this graph. Looks like the flooding hit the Sky pretty hard... Glad I was out there to witness it.

    Good sarcasm. As far as the flooding goes, you're going to see a sharp rise in rivers around here and it will catch the novices off guard. It will make my job easier and others' on the front line. If you don't need the weather report(s), then don't read em' bud.

    And unless you are a complete idiot, when the rivers start to rise either start rowing for the takeout or take one step back. And then when it rises a bit more take another step back. We live in Western Washington, already have 3 local tv channels with up to date "PINPOINT SEVERE WEATHER FORECASTS" and now we have to be inundated with it on a fly fishing site. You're right though, I just don't need to read. When some folks post here I check in to see what they have to offer. With others, well.... Time to start my day.

    All this talk of rain and rising rivers...has anyone yet seen Jim Forman on location, being pummeled by torrential rains, standing in knee-deep water? NO! That's because he's not worried about a little rain- hell, Danger Jim is fishing, because someone's got his back.

    Wow...it's like Rut's blog with everyone commenting on it. I figured I needed to join in the topic with at least one reply. I guess I can say that I'm one hundred and fifty seventh! Woooooo!

    LOL, very funny! Just think, in a few days the rivers should be back in shape and hopefully have some fresh fish in the mix!! :thumb:

    Gotta tie up a few flies and spend some time out there... definitely!

    After your reaming of another poster for giving weather reports, thanks so much for the flow updates :rolleyes:. Once again, your lack of consistency is remarkable.

    PT--

    Thanks for making me take a quick look at my July/August recorded flows/Stilly hatchery steelhead kills over the last few years. I don't generally fish Fortson, but one of the below came from the Picnic Table Hole:

    0--200: 1
    200-400:19
    400-600: 5
    600-800: 14
    800-1000: 0
    1000-1200: 4
    1200+: 0

    incidentals:
    Chinook: 3 between 1200 and 1400...but I often don't write these down...
    Dollies: too numerous to count, but a LOT above that 1200 mark...hmm
    Dates: 0 (*sigh*)

    Looks like I have a lot to learn...
