Here’s link to Bob’s obituary:!/Obituary

We had some rain overnight with light showers still falling this morning. The flows have bumped slightly but so far everything looks good. Oquaga Creek is up 30 cfs. We’re hitting a cooler stretch of weather which should help the water temps and hatching on the lower river sections. Today definitely looks like an olive day. If we do see sunshine and humidity this afternoon keep an eye on the water for flying ants

Today will be much cooler hitting 71 degrees. We have light rain falling now bu may see some sunshine in the afternoon. This morning’s rainfall should only total .04″. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.
