Short and Sweet: Too Warm, Too Wet

Pineapple Express

This most recent incoming south Pacific "Pineapple Express" slammed through here over the last 24 hours, nudging into the Olympic Mountains on it's way to Vancouver Island and B.C., and spanked us with plenty of warm rain. This has affected all of our Olympic Peninsula coastal rivers and left us with dirty and high flows, and no immediate fishing plans for a little while as we wait for colder temperatures in the lower elevations to return. For your interest and toward a better understanding of how these things work, here below is a link to Dr Cliff Mass's blog and his comments on this unusually strong and sudden event. I will be tying flies for now. Maybe we will be fishing again later next week. Stay tuned.
