    Hang-on leaves are falling

    Joel La Follette - Wednesday, November 12, 2014
    The airwaves are buzzing as Snowmageddon blows into the valley today. Some poor rookie on the local news storm team is stuck on the Sylvan overpass wondering if four years in college was worth the rubber snow boots and bad hat. We all expected winter to wrestle fall into submission, but maybe not this soon. Those hang-on leaves are losing their grip and rinsing down the river along with our summer memories. It’s time to bundle up.

    There may not be enough layers to block the windchill on the east side. Arctic winds and bone chilling temps have all but the most hardy seeking warmer past times. Those brave souls venturing out have found fish on both the Deschutes and John Day, but they are well earned.

    The John Day has been colored up by what has been reported as a mudslide well above Cottonwood. The exact location isn’t clear, but word has it that it make take a spring high water event to fully flush the offending muck from the system. Until then, even small bumps in flow will probably see increased turbidity. Fortunately the slow pace of the John Day allows for sediment to settle fairly quickly as it moves downstream. Corey Koff reported yesterday that the water from Cottonwood down wasn’t perfect, but it was fishable and producing.

    The Deschutes has seen anglers moving onto greener pastures, but still has something to contribute to those making the trip. Fishing above Maupin has been good and water conditions favorable. The river guides are mostly done there for the season and are preparing for their winter adventures. As stated, there are still fish to be encountered if you are willing to brave the chill.

    Coastal streams are filling with Salmon of all shapes and sizes. Most streams dropped into favorable shape after the last rain and allowed anglers some successes. The annual pilgrimage to rivers on the south coast as begun. There, more rain is needed to spread the love.

    Locally, the Clackamas as seen the an early showing of winter fish still mixed in with the summer catch. The traditional winter Steelhead kick off on Thanksgiving may pull a few away from football games if these conditions continue.
