Dicey

Things are looking dicey for my big fishing trip to Oregon. The Coquille is the nearest river to the camp I'll be staying at, and last year it was eminently fishable in the balmy temperatures amid budding leaves and wildflowers. Not looking so good right now.

The North Fork of the Umpqua, just down the road, is also having its issues.




The Upper Rogue looks like a better bet.



My fishing window is Sunday to Wednesday, so maybe there's a chance rivers can come down. But the weather looks like it's not going to help matters much: 



Sunday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 47. 

Sunday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 31. 

Washington's BirthdayA chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. 

Monday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 29. 

Tuesday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 45. 

Tuesday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 32. 

Wednesday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. 


I still plan to pack the fishing gear. And I'll be packing warm.
