Grande Ronde Blowing out
Cold one week and thawing out the next. What is it with this part of the world. We are experiencing 45 F temperatures at 5,000 ft just outside of Joseph today. Looks like it may continue to be warm and rain through the weekend. The Grande Ronde River is on a steep climb and looks like it could double in flow in the next 12 hours getting over 3,000 cfs. This is probably a bad weekend to try to cast a fly for Steelhead on the Grande Ronde River. We will plan on getting out and fishing as the flows drop on after this event. Could be good.
Not sure how high up the rain is falling but I plan on finding out tomorrow. Could be some fun skiing above 8,000 ft.
