Tough kid. Probably got it from his dad? The water is now over 50 degrees down here in PDX. We usually drop the drysuit around the end of May as the water gets around 70. The River agreement is to keep the temp below 70 for the fish but it is not unusual for it to reach 72-73.

@GOODESkier the army corp of engineers works with the states, Indian tribes, etc. to control water flow/releases at the various dams based off fish migration/runs. The release of water downriver by us will lower the water temps. This is done over 1000 miles of river in multiple states and two countries. The water temp can be 20-30 degrees difference from us here in PDX vs in Canada.

 

I'm sure there is much better info out there but that is the way I understand it.

 

Still waiting to try ZO on the river. Soon...
