Rising waters….

Probably within 48 hours the trunks of those leaning trees will once again be submerged as a water laden storm front moves into the Oregon coast from the Pacific ocean. Melting snow in the coast range and heavy rain will at least double the depth of this river that I was fishing in yesterday. Hoping the damages will be minimal (this happens several times a Fall/Winter) and that it will push Winter Steelhead out of the Pacific into the coastal rivers. I will be returning once the waters recede.

Questions: Fukushima ~ Is there an effect now?

“The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

“Part of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And it’s still out there, everywhere you look.” (Source of ?’s)
