High water & life…

“Come hell or high water you will never take me back to the place I was before. I have been through too much to let life whoop me again. My faith is stronger than it’s ever been, my mind is more tenacious than it’s ever been, my soul is more absolute.”  T.D. Jakes

Signs of High Water…

If you look at the shoreline shrubs, you will notice at the top of each plant clusters of debris that attached themselves when the river rose up into the vegetation. The shrubs acted like filters gathering needles, leaves and smaller twigs. Often these debris pods can be seen higher up in trees and shrubs giving a good indication of how high the river had risen during a past freshet, or release from a dam above. In this instance, all runoff upstream in the mountains (Oregon Coast Range).

Sad to say……….

this is as close as I have been to wading and fly fishing of late. Went in for a few beverages with my friend Joe Berentsen and missed the downpour. Definitely time to wet a line.

Warning Signs: High Water

Outdoors: High Water Warning

Watching the news, we are aware of flooding, sometimes with catastrophic consequences. Oregon usually has the rivers over some banks in November or December and then in the Spring. On my recent excursion up the Deschutes River Rd. (BLM Access Road), I noticed a, new to me, paved portion of the bumpy gravel road. The look was unique to Oregon roads and apparently with good cause. I have seen these markers and warnings in Arizona and Texas, but never Oregon. Yes, as the stereotypical image suggests, it rains a lot in parts of Oregon. In other parts less so, but apparently when it does….look out.
