      This weekend is going to be super. The river will be up. Sunny Saturday with a high of 60. Partly sunny Sunday with a high close to 70. The water is ice-melt cold however. I use the 100 degree rule- add water temperature and air temp and if it’s below 100 degrees, seriously consider a dry suit.

      Also the buzzards (female) arrived yesterday. Hundreds of them flying and circling in the air. A huge flock.

      Beavers are munching on trees at MS. I wonder if there’s any way we can induce them to eat trees on river right?

      Chuck, love the forecast.

      “report from the saint” did not include actual level, or indication that the Roselle gage is correct (or close)?

      I hiked in river right last week, heard the beavers working just upstream of Hollywood beach again.

      syotr, crazy jerry

      ps. my hated of cold means that I will be in a dry suit at a # much higher than the 100 that you mentioned

      Yeah- number wise I’m more apt to go with 90 degrees just because I don’t like drysuits- but today at 20 inches, I knew I’d be in the water a lot so I wore one (32degrees + 45 degrees= 77 degrees.)

      BTW the gauge and Roselle are matching 100 % right now- why I do not know- but there was a big log up at roselle and it may be gone now.

      There is also still a LOT of snow in the mountains. That should really slow down the river drop.

      Early run for me tomorrow-
