Tactics for high water

Due to the extremely wet winter we had, most of the streams are running cold fast and extremely full. The recent hot spell has begun to melt the huge snowpack with a vengeance and the rivers are boiling. This was one of the wettest years on record and the melting snow is creating extremely dangerous conditions. Usually at this time of year the snow run off has peaked and stream levels have begun to recede to normal summertime levels.

Father’s Day reflections

Several years ago, an auto accident claimed the life of a singer-songwriter named Harry Chapin. As is the case with many song writers, Chapin was actually a poet and philosopher who used music to expound upon the nature of life. Probably the most famous song that Harry Chapin wrote was titled "The Cats in the Cradle". It was about a fellow who was on his way up in the world and was too busy to spend time with his son. The young achiever was away on a business trip when his son was born. A few years later the son ...
