Harney County is seeing water levels which haven't been noted in a number of years. This weekend saw flood warnings for various parts of the county, and reservoirs are gleaning the rewards of our snow-laden winter.
Chickahominy is, for all purposes, full, and completely ice free. On 3/17/17, I checked on it to find it very murky (about 6" visibility), and with the wind, and ensuing gales on Saturday, it'll be awhile until it clears up. Of course, I had to cast a fly there for awhile, and did get surprised with a fat 10" rainbow on a black Wooly Bugger. (For those of you who know me, yes....black. More about that in another post....)
Krumbo is so full that a couple of sections of the dock are under water. Other than that, the water is in good shape, and there seem to be fish from 13-20+" swimming about. Brown is a good color when fishing Krumbo. (Again, more about that sometime in another post...)
It appears that the Blitzen is going to be seeing some high water soon, as the daily flow keeps inching upward the past few days, nearing 200 cfs today. Water levels appear to be highest around mid to late morning.
As of yesterday, Beulah was at 82% full.
The lower Owyhee is currently flowing at 2700 cfs. Yes, two "0's" there....
