The good news first. The water clarity is still quite good at Carter’s Bridge this morning. And the Mother’s Day Caddis were out in large numbers again yesterday. Oh, and it’s going to be a beautiful day to float or wade the river. That’s the good news.
The less good news – river flows are shooting upward on the gauge at Corwin Springs, above Yankee Jim Canyon. And the dirty water is on its way. Visibility up by Point of Rocks was down to a foot or so at 7:00 this morning. Expect conditions to worsen as the day goes on. By tomorrow, the fun very well may be over, given how warm today is going to be. Oh, well, it’s been a good time while it lasted.0
