Went up to Liedl this morning and noticed a little color in the water.  Not bad, still fishable even with a fly, but if rains in the upper watershed continue it could get worse.  Mt. Adams was enveloped in clouds but temps indicate it should be snow up there.

Clarity was good down low this morning but has gone to around 1′ vis by early afternoon.  Assuming the color came from rains and not glacial till it should clear up pretty quickly.  It’s still steelhead green, not brown but watch flows.  If discharge spikes again it will get worse.  Flows spiked from about 670cfs to 730cfs early this morning.  The increase in discharge could/should/might initiate some salmon movement upstream.
