I think I'm going to be on the river next Friday, if a Snagglefamily (never mind) raft-cum-steelhead trip works out. Hopefully it will cool off a bit and the White River Glacier will cease spewing its guts. BTW: the upper river (Warm Springs to Maupin) will be RED HOT for steelhead in mid-Sept (now) through the end of October. One tricky rapid and drifts very few between are all that keep people from 10 Steely days. A sure shot would be a walk-in at South Junction. A long, lovely drift beside the islands there, and usually good steelheading.
