Just looked at the 10 day weather forecast and must say I like it! Highs in the 70’s for a few days and then dropping into the 60’s, wonderful! Bonneville passage is still crappy for steelhead but chinook have taken a recent jump. Year to date numbers are very poor for both steelhead and fall chinook but since chinook school they are typically much easier to find, while also being more numerous.
The sky was clear and blue this morning but this afternoon it’s smokey big time.
The river is dropping slowly and clearing slowly. Temps on Mt. Adams are predicted to be falling too, freeze level predicted to fall to 9000′ and stay close through the weekend. Beginning Friday we could be seeing the best water we’ve seen in a long while. Here’s a pic of today’s water in town at 2:15pm.
