What? How did I miss that flow? I hit 7.5' on June 7, then I think I missed the next weekend. If I recall it kept going up even after that weekend flush - so much RAIN! I usually quietly say how I've never snuck the falls (not even my first times at 6.5' and 8.5' which were day 5 & 6 for me), and in the last two years I've never pushed either (ALWAYS pull back), but times are a changing for this old gal.
She's just about 5.5' right now, I might be taking a gamble with my little boat tomorrow, doing a dirty 30. I have never in my life hoped for it to go down..... I may have to at least not pull back so much. I haven't had that little guy over 3' yet. I don't really want to haul both boats, and I need to be loaded tonight. So far it doesn't seem flippy. Squirrely yes, but not flippy and I threw it into everything I could at 3'. There's still plenty of meat in the Grim Reaper hole (surfing the top of it adds interest, then getting surfed in it), the falls of course (impossible to catch a surf at that level), and Terminator always has something juicy to hit if you want.
Oh it will be so nice to be back on the Lovely Lochsa tomorrow!
