How's the flooding?

Hood River now in flood stage, does not happen often. What's happening in other river districts. Too much rain, snow level on Mt Hood now at 8000 ft with ski areas closed for the day. No cool weather till maybe mid week.
Lets all go to the South Pacific and fish for a week or two.

Here, on the mid-Oregon coast, we've had close to 8 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. The Alsea is predicted to crest about two feet below flood, although the river has risen more than six feet in the last day.

Other than debris battering its way downstream, we shouldn't have a problem. The streams might even be fishable later in the week.

The Siletz is at defined flood stage but will peak soon and begin to recede. Hopefully nothing dire has occured along its course.

Cheers,

Eric

Snohomish is predicted to have major flooding. Glad I don't work down there anymore. Company I used to work for has a large facility on Smith Island. I know I would have been down there fixing crap after the water receeds.

Skagit will crest just over flood stage in both Mt. Vernon and Concrete sometime tomorrow evening. Only issue I see is the crest is predicted to be sustained for several hours. This could cause damage to some of the weaker dikes.

Stilly will just make it to flood stage which is good they got hammered last flood.

Basically the same for the Nooksack.

Better plan on the OP or somewhere other than the PS rivers. They will all be closed at the end of the month.

Last look at the gauge in Mt. Vernon the Skagit was running at 81,800 cubic feet per second.

The Hood is coming down. Yesterday I watched kyakers going down river amongst the downed trees and some 10 foot high rapids. And not your ordinary downed trees but ones bigger around than my garden outhouse is wide. Talked with some of them long haired kayakers today and their reply, "Hey Dude, that was hairy man, like the river of no return, man!" Welcome to Hood River, one of the great USA counties of extreme sport of every kind. Fishing will come back some day as soon as river goes down and some winter runs decide to climb the Bonnieville dam.
