River held it's shape with good vis thru some light rain for the 30 mins or so I was out there.  Surprisingly low tho considering.. I haven't been out for three weeks but I thought we got some decent rain in that stretch and thought the river would be higher when I got there...lol ;D

Visibility around a couple of feet. I thought it got better than a bit worse throughout the morning.

The strong wind was more of a factor than any thing else. Saw a fish lost when speaking to a couple of members of this forum. ;D ;D ;D

I had nothing in an hour or so of trying, broke off on a 20 pound rock so called it a day and went for coffee. ::)

River looked OK when I drove over the Vedder Bridge at 10AM. Must be as saw lots of anglers on the river.

Vis was up an down today but nicely fishable the whole time.  Just left the river, been raining pretty good the last hr and it looked to just be coloring up a bit more again.  So tomorrow may be up in teh air for conditions... funny thing tho... we found some fish when the vis dropped to just over foot.  Was a decent day overall. ;)

It has cooled down this afternoon so I believe it should be fishable some time tomorrow, when will be a toss up.

Well it didn't really rain all night as far as I can tell.  Just a little snow, as it cooled down to 1 degree.   The graph is on the drop, not a lot yet tho.  I'm heading out in a couple mins to have a look... I'll update when I get back. :)
