The rain and wet snow has now taken it toll, visibility 1 foot at 5PM.

Still raining so will let you decide what it will be like in the morning, might be worth driving here to get gas at $1.27 litre. ???

Wow an expense drive to fish the Vedder now from the Lower Manland.  ::)The thing is many will drive here tomorrow to most likely find it blown. I guess they don't read FWR. ;D ;D ;D I guess they could then go to Cookies Grill for breakfast. :D

Donot think it rained much overnight but is light rain now with some wind. River up a inch or two since yesterday. A tough call for the clarity at first light.

Just because you have a pin rod doesnt mean you know how to fish it.....

You are more than welcome. Talked to one angler who said it was improving from first light but with the conditions we are experiencing today it could change one way or the other.

The one plus is it is fairly cool. I will give areport later in the day. I see they cancelled the spey clinic today at Cultus, I would think because of the wind.

Good luck on your other flow.

The wind was the killer today. When we got there, the water was really murky but as we fished, I noticed the colour getting better and better. When we left at 10am, it was very fishable. It was the wind that drove us away.

If the wind dies down I think you will be able to catch them. The wind was so strong that it pushed my float up while drifting.

Thanks for the update chris, probably hit the flow tommorow. Pen was out today and lost one at mid river, so they must see in current visability.
