    It looks like I won't be fishing for a couple of weeks. I hope the spawn turns out ok.

    I have been trying to get out to fish some rivers. they haven't been clear since April.

    Is there a Go Away Rain Dance to preform before I float away?!?:C

    The worst part about this rain is that it is really going to hurt the spawn. Most fish had laid eggs and those and the fry are going to get washed out now.

    I hear ya. Last saturday, I was bumming because I thought I was on my last trip to Rocky Fork Creek. It's up 2.5 feet since then.

    The water gauges have been fun and dissapointing to watch.

    I don't mind the rain personally, except for any damage it may do to the spawn. The creek I live on is a small drainage area near the OR and empties quickly. This time of year after a good (or bad depending on how you look at it) rain, the hybrids tend to come up in the creek when the water clears and OR comes up. Usually makes for a good couple of days fishing. I plan to try it this weekend!

    I went out tonight and the hybrids and white bass were up in the creek at the first riffle. Current was just a bit above normal, usually good conditions in my experience to bring the hybrids into the tribs while the river rises. Maybe the larger tribs will start clearing up tomorrow.

    Seriously, this rain needs to stop. don't want to be forced to shore fish like someones grandpa cause the river is too high. (not meant to offend shore fishermen or grandpas). I just wanna wade some rivers.
