350 CFS Dam Release

May 4, 2023

With the dam release adjusted to 750 CFS, a few anglers joined us first thing this morning with most joining us for the afternoon.  Things have remained fairly cool with the rain and overcast this past week.  Today, water temperatures began at a reported 49 F and only reached 51 F by this afternoon.  Based on reports from our anglers it seemed to be a fairly quiet day for nearly all.  The small mouth likely a bit inactive with the cooler water temperatures.  The steelhead on the other hand, may have had a nice ride out with the high water we experience this week, giving the river a bit of a clean sweep.  The highlight of the day came from a couple of our pass holders, reporting a recently expired chinook in the area of center pool.  The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 750 CFS until tomorrow  (5/5) at 11:59 PM.  Please check for updated dam release information.
