    I'll be there Bob; my boat reserve oil tank was replaced and I did a test run to the bridge (the one before jims crk) no problems surfaced, Glen Wooldridge covered the fix, Thanks GW

    By the way have you caught any silver yet (on the kink)

    Bob post some pictures. I would have loved to bring the Blue Tub up, but house full of company and trying to fish the salt. Dan

    Silvers are in, but low. Lots of chum right now though, so there is action. My silver report is three days old though, i talked to a guy who had one from about six miles up from the ramp. They are there, but not easy yet.

    Well I have only been about two miles above the end of the public use area but the water is up right now. Had a big spike the last few days but last check it was falling, this rain may change that. Was a little over 3.80 when I was there on Tuesday and that seemed huge to me, burial a greenhorn still myself, thou if I was alone think I could have ran to hatchets the way the river looked. Lots of chinook rolling around though so nice to dink around.

    After looking, Tuesday was around 4.5 ft and down to 3.5 as of the last report.

    Hey Blue Thunder...I'm not sure if that beauty of yours can run skinny enough to get to the glacier. From the boat ramp up to Jim Creek (about 8 milesish) you should be fine though. Maybe sometime you come up and ride with me...

    That blue beauty can make it to the glacier with ease ...I'd love to join you next time out...let me know when you head out again...there's a neat little hike on the opposite bank once you get to the ice with a great view...

    Mail box is not full so the reason is unk to me? all the other times it worked so I have no clue. I emptied my inbox (way under 50) maybe that will help. I PM'd you with an e-mail address and I'll send you the pictures.
