Raining a bit now.  Don't think it will effect the river much yet... but they are calling for lots of rain later.  I'll report on flow when I get back from the day fishing. :)

Have a good day again Dave. ;D Heading out  shortly and hope to get one for the tube before the river goes out, should be OK for a bit as did not rain overnight.

Yes it was very nice. ;D however we are getting fairly heavy rain now, not sure how long it may hold.

I guess I should have been there with the tube as I understand only 2 tubed, coming into today. Glad the water is holding, the weather is very changeable today as the rain has stopped now and I notice the snow level is low on the hills which will hold some of the water back. No wind yet.

No once a tuber kills a fish he must stop fishing the river you are on but if you tube a wild you can continue to fish.

Thanks for the question.

That would have been great Chris considering i got it out of ur spot... Lol It's pouring now, and after losing that big hatch doe at my feet, I thought my day was done... But I went back and worked thru again, and I must have had the lucky stick today.  Got my hatch in the pouring rain.  ;D
