not sure about other coastal rivers but Siuslaw just hit 'minor flood' stage at 2pm Monday and I think it will go higher based on rain we have been getting all day...



Flood warning just issued for many rivers:
Grays River near Rosburg affecting Wahkiakum County
Nehalem River near Foss affecting Clatsop and Tillamook Counties
Wilson River near Tillamook affecting Tillamook County
Trask River near Tillamook affecting Tillamook County
Siletz River at Siletz affecting Lincoln County
Alsea River Near Tidewater affecting Benton and Lincoln Counties
Siuslaw River near Mapleton affecting Lane County

Ya lots of local flooding, rivers rising..

Portland had 2.35" of rain today, which is the most we've ever had in one day in December and the most we've ever had in a calendar day! Cool stuff..rivers really blown out though!

Wow! Setting records........... can't wait till they drop :thumb:
 
If they drop. haha It looks like high water for a long time. Might need to get used to fishing the Siuslaw at 10+!

I'm beating myself up because a buddy wanted to fish Saturday and I talked him into going away from the Siuslaw because it was at 7. We chose Siltcoos instead, which was a total bust. On the way, we noticed that the Slaw looked absolutely perfect.

Lol, yeah if they drop. Luckily the Slaw has a later run of steelies and we have plenty of time. Who knows what this winter has in store though.

Looks like the Wilson is at moderate flood stage now. It will be interesting with the proposed rain over the next several days. There were several neighborhoods around work today that were flooded.

you could probably do that during halftime and be back to see the 4th quarter...:D

if we get the heavy rain that is predicted tonight and even more Tuesday night, I would expect them to adjust their prediction real quick...
