Anyone know if Lower Mesa is running? Or PNW is running?

Checking Eddy Flower is says it is at 1300cfs which is a pretty good flow. http://eddyflower.com/CountryDetail....tateId=7#/home

I also heard Murtaugh is in. With my birthday around the corner I am wanting to hit a few things. I was thinking PNW. I am getting mixed reports from nothing is running, white salmon is running, but nothing else, or it should rain any time. If I am not on at least class IV on my birthday that will suck indeed, and I am willing to travel to make that happen. Any Oregon boaters know if the white salmon, or little white will be in next week.

Seems like both the AW, and the Eddyflower gauge are reading the same now, but if anyone lives up that way I would love to know for sure. I may head up that way.

It is about to turn cold with possible snow here in Seattle. Runs like Robe canyon and Ernie's here in the Seattle area are in, but will soon be out if it gets as cold as it is supposed to. Not sure about the white salmon, but I bet there is something to be had there. Most people will likely be skiing though, may be hard to find people to boat with.

If the green is in it should be easy to hook up with people. I'm not sure what else will be in but you can always hit up professor paddle to try and find a group.

I hear its been raining in Hood River, and supposed to rain more. I see that EF Lewis bumped to 800 yesterday, which would be a decent enough level. 600 is bumpy in spots, but the rapids and drops are still clean.

Sounds like Canyon Creek is in (the one near Portland), and the Truss if you're up for that.

Mad Mile on the Gallatin is near Big Sky, Montana.
Funny there is a picture of you FSM, on this Gallatin description:

Eddyflower still has their pictures scrambled.

Your PNW beta is correct: the Truss is running and everything else is a definite maybe with this weather coming in. Probably a little early for L-Dub above 3.0, as that usually needs a few storm cycles before it comes up (weird plumbing on that side of Adams). Murtaugh is running at about 6,000, which is a really fun medium level. Lower Mesa should be low but runnable. NF Payette is still ELFable too.

If the Truss sounds good to you, then I'd gamble on the Hood River zone because the wet weather seems to be rolling in on the regular.

Wow! 530 cfs to 2130 cfs in 6 hours? Sounds like a little rain going on!
