FYI the local newspaper has posted the "snow pack" figures for the Olympics, you know where the water for the Forks area rivers comes from! Well get started praying for rain because according to the numbers we are really going to need a lot of it. Rain Dancing is also appropo.
The actual observation shows that we have 45% of last years snow pack and only 19% of the five year average.
The water temps in the Quillayute system are already in the 60's and the North Calawah is drying up faster than I have ever scene even though we just had a very wet month of June.
