Default Willamette river turbidity website

I got this website from a fishing buddy. Thought I would pass it along.

It gives a 14 day turbidity of the Willamette river at the Morrison bridge.

Looks like the Willamette and small rivers will be "toast" for awhile.

Does anyone have any idea how long it takes for water from the Willamet

At the current rate and taken exponentially, it will be fishable by Thursday. Does this help any?

Not if turbidity goes up again because of the recent storm.

Do you have the link to the web page that creates this report? I'm wondering if there are other stations that you can run a report from...

Thanks!

We will be very, very lucky to see it fishable by the weekend...looks to me more like Monday or Tuesday.

Whats it need to get down to in order for the Willi to be fishable? Is the Willi dropping or cleaning up at all?

Go here:

http://ahps2.wrh.noaa.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=pqr

Click on Salem...When the water drops to or below 9 feet at Salem, we're about a day and a half later to fishable...

Thanks Bill. Were flying back on Thursday and hoping to fish the CR at Cathlamet. Hopefully the Willi won't be ruining the lower CR by then.
