Notice from the Nestucca NORTH to the Nehalem on the USGS Rivergauge Page* the beginnings of a river level RISE on all those streams. Rain the rest of the day and tonight and tomorrow morning is the FORECAST. The moistness of the frontal system arriving TONIGHT will shed heavier amounts in the upslope mountains which drain into those river basins. Here's the FORECAST DISCUSSION from the NWS regarding the :dance:RAIN:dance: amounts likely to fall:pray::


AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
245 PM PDT TUE AUG 31 2010

.SYNOPSIS...A PAIR OF PACIFIC FRONTS WILL MOVE ACROSS THE FORECAST
AREA THIS EVENING AND WEDNESDAY BEFORE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST FOR THE END OF THE WEEK.

&&

.SHORT TERM...RAIN HAS SPREAD INTO THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE FORECAST
AREA TODAY AS A 120 KT JET STREAK APPROACHES THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST...PUSHING ALONG A COUPLE MOIST FRONTAL SYSTEMS. THE FIRST
SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT OUR AREA THIS EVENING. SO FAR WITH
THIS FRONT...COASTAL AREAS AND THE NORTH COAST RANGE HAVE SEEN
PRECIPITATION TOTALS FROM 0.15 TO 0.45 INCHES...AND INLAND AREAS HAVE
SEEN TOTALS UP TO 0.20 INCHES. THE MAIN AREA OF PRECIPITATION WILL
REMAIN OVER THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CWA AS THE FIRST FRONT PASSES
THROUGH.

THE SECOND MORE MOIST FRONTAL SYSTEM IS EXPECT TONIGHT AND INTO WED
MORNING...BRINGING MORE WIDESPREAD RAIN TO THE ENTIRE CWA...HOWEVER
NORTHERN PORTIONS AND ESPECIALLY THE MORE FAVORABLE UPSLOPE AREAS
WILL SEE HEAVIER ACCUMULATIONS. PRECIPITATION TOTALS WITH BOTH
SYSTEMS THROUGH MIDDAY WEDNESDAY COULD BE UP TO AN INCH OR MAYBE MORE
OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS...AGAIN ESPECIALLY NORTH...AND UP TO HALF AN
INCH TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH OVER THE COAST AND NORTHERN INLAND
VALLEYS.

RAIN SHOULD TAPER OFF TO SHOWERS BY WED AFTERNOON AS THE TROUGH MOVES
EAST TO MAKE WAY FOR A STRENGTHENING RIDGE TO MOVE OVER THE FORECAST
AREA. A THERMAL TROUGH WILL BEGIN TO BUILD UP THE COAST FROM
CALIFORNIA LATE WED INTO THU...EFFECTIVELY CUTTING OFF ANY SHOWER
POTENTIAL BY STRENGTHENING THE OFFSHORE FLOW. BY THU THE THERMAL
TROUGH SHOULD BE FIRMLY IN PLACE ALONG THE COAST FOR A RETURN OF
DRIER AND WARMER CONDITIONS. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REBOUND TO
AROUND SEASONAL LEVELS THU AND CONTINUE INTO FRI. BROWN



*USGS Real-Time Data for Oregon_ Streamflow

Thinking of invading the Tillamook area soon.:think: Hmmm. Should leave tonight so as to be there in the A.M. Hmmmmm!:D

Trask & Wilson update...

Trask & Wilson update...

Well, looks like the Trask is the big riser having come up almost a FOOT in 24 hours, with the Wilson not doing quite as much. Here's the USGS River Guage Page link again:

Think we will try the Trask today, though the river is restricted every which way. Will check out the Wilson too. Hopefully we will get there in time to do some crabbing then hit the Trask/Wilson this evening and in the morning.
Anyone got any advice for this old fisherperson?:lol:

Of course! Though I notice the bag limit for fall chinook up there is ONE adult chinook per day and you cannot fish for fall chinook above the RxR bridge on the Wilson or above the Hwy. 101 bridge on the Trask until September 16th. However...there is NO similar restriction on the Tillamook River. Hmmm. Got a friend who works swing shift at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, a lifer. He works in the receiving department and is an angler and hunter. Think I'll look him up when we get there.

need some company on your trip? :D

Sorry, cwsmith. Didn't get your post until after we got up there. Didn't hook anything but a seabass with a big steelhead spoon, almost at dark!:) The Coho were in the channel along the jetty down to about 30 or so feet, with chinook down deeper. Caught a few Dungeoness crabs and that seabass. The Trask had gone up about a foot and dropped quick after the rains upstream stopped. Found the Hospital Hole though no one was fishing it yet. I'll post the pics later. Gotta go to work shortly.
