Water is Beautifull although all that I caught was some nice Cutthroats.
but still!! I decided to bail early because it was snowing really hard and didn't
know how bad the pass would be.
I chained up and spent the next 3 hours helping others.
Semi's slid sideways blocking all lanes, People without chains sliding into rails.
Semi drivers that dont know how to put chains on...
Was just retarded. at one point there was over a mile backup because some idiot decided he
should turn around and ended up blocking all the lanes and couldnt move.

If you plan on going out there please be smart. Toss the chains in the car.
I even watched 4x4's sliding into things so... just be ready.
The guy that blocked the whole road decided to argue with Odot that he was a good driver and he didn't need him telling him what to do..... Of all the times to argue that you know what your doing...

How were the roads?

Theres mostly ice up there.
I wouldnt go up there in a 2 wheel sedan without studs or chains.
But it should be clearing out or next few days.

My Subaru with studs was a beast. Most of the pass was a solid sheet of ice, but it had all been plowed and sanded. Once you get to the far side it warmed up a bit and the roads weren't quite as bad as the east side. Most vehicles had chains, but all wheel drive you'd be ok if you were careful and didn't have to take evasive action.

Water temp was 42 degrees, air temp was 19-26 degrees. Cold day.

Thanks fellas. I'm heading to either the Wilson or Necanicum tomorrow and just want to know what to expect. I hit the river on Monday and it was 29 degrees and snowing when I started.

Decided on the Necanicum. Roads were icy but not bad, no snow. Great day on the river even though I got skunked. Cold and overcast with snow flurries, and I had the river pretty much to myself. Only bad part was driving back to PDX and getting stuck behind idiots who feel it necessary to go 20 mph, never use the right lane, and never pull off to let the 20 cars behind go by. It took an hour to get to the river and over 2 hours to get home.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
Congress needs to pass a bill stating that on treacherous, icy roads the only ones allowed to drive are dedicated fisher folk! All others will be chained to guardrails to serve as "bumper bodies". :lol: :lol: :yay: :yay: :yay:
