About 18 inches below Sherar's when I left yesterday afternoon. Was a little better in the morning.

Saw that yesterday but no mention of an answer to my question. Again my question is how can 100 cfs take out entire lower river?? Not a hydrological engineer but seems very low flow to impact that may miles of river flowing at 4000cfs

the density of silt from the white is the problem, think about a few drops of food coloring in a glass of water.

It also has to do with volume, as depicted in these two videos:

The air above the Deschutes was as dirty as the White River day before yesterday. Even worse air than PDX.

Observation from Macks; Friday 9/18 was ok--mayyyybe 2 ft. Saturday was very clear. Sunday had a little color in the morning, getting lots of silt by afternoon. Monday morning was improved.

Now, if we could just get into a few steelhead............

The early sheep hunters went 4/4!

It got progressively better from Thursday through this morning. I think the deer hunters did about as good as the steelhead anglers!
I don't recall seeing the river as crowded in October. One fella thought it was an effort of folks to escape from Covid-phobia. Whatever it is, it is one heluva lot of people.

The White was dumping pure mud on Thursday (10/1) but had the lowest flow I've ever seen in 30+ years. The D is very low as well. The river looked fine as you went downstream.

Thought I’d hit it perfect last week just as weather was moving in. White was in full blown mode before rain. Had the road stretch below Maupin pretty much to myself with perfect conditions. Water temps low 50s. Nada. Zip.
