We have 5 days remaining of the summer steelhead season on the Klickitat. River has been in perfect shape the last few days, since it warmed up. Today we got some real warm Chinook winds and warm temps, around 60F this morning. About mid-day the water began to color up in the lower river. It’s not that bad, still over a foot vis and I’d have swung a fly in it I had the tme. I’d guess around a 1.5′ vis at the slide around 1:30pm.
NOAA’s river forecast suggested an increase in flows and it’s happening but I don’t think it has much to do with rain, maybe rising freezing levels and the warm winds..
