8/27/15 Update:

Larger daily discharge cycle today.  The water in the lower river remains decent but not much, if any, better.  At Leidl it looked like the turbidity was a little higher but I’m not sure you’d notice it.  Weather forecast suggests we’ll hit 90F today, low 80’s tomorrow (Friday) and 70’s through next Saturday (10 day forecast).

My guess is the water will be improving throughout the following week though we have a high likelihood of rain on Saturday and Tuesday.  If we get notable rain the river will likely mud up but it’ll be a good thing regardless.  Salmon passage over Bonneville is getting big but steelhead numbers remain well under the 10 year average.
