The rain has been relentless. It was Forest Gump rain almost all day yesterday and we actually had an argument at the shop that the Adipose Skiff that was full of water was like that because it was running off the roof and filling the boat up. Ol’ Craig won the argument. The roof wasn’t contributing to filling the boat up at all. Unreal amounts of rain here on the sunny side of the state.
This is going to be the last wipeout of the year. The lower river is absolutely wiped out and then some. The upper river is coming up now thanks to the “dam releases”, yes I said it. Damn releases! The reservoirs are FULL. Check out this link if you haven’t ever looked at it before: http://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/yakima/yaktea.html
Overall this is a good thing. The fishing we experienced last week will happen again when the river drops but in the meantime we’ll need to find something else to do. Consider coming to Isaak’s Ranch with us this Saturday. The river is going to be out of whack any way so you might as well come stick a few pigs at the lake with us.
