I’ve never seen the Klickitat come back into shape so quickly, it happened overnight. Looked at the water at the boat landing in town at about 5:30 this morning and it was steelhead green!! Vis had improved dramatically.
I can only assume Mt. Adams and glacial till had nothing to do with the loss in clarity we saw on Saturday. Glacial till is very fine and remains in suspension much longer than sediment runoff from heavy rains.
Weather forecasts suggest high temps in the mid 80’s for this week with Tuesday getting into the low 90’s. I’m thinking these temps won’t have much impact on the river so it should be a good week for fishing.
