Big Water Event Ahead
This graph shows the forecasted water levels for the Clackamas River for Dec 19-24. Rarely do we get a graph like this where there is so much pink at the top of the screen. More commonly on big rain storms we would see the river rising near or to the Action phase at 18'. Here it shows the river rising to Major Flood stage at nearly 25'. Normal flows for this time of year are around 12'6"-14'. Looks like this one is going to be a dandy. Watch for new channels to form and the river to shift. We may have some new holes to fish by Christmas!
