Flows should be ripping pretty good by sat. http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrogra ... gage=hopw1
Lyons Ferry on the Snake is about an hour or so from the TriCities. The launch is nice and has a resteraunt. It is just outside of Starbuck Wa.

Tony, find Lyons Ferry where Highway 261 crosses the Snake River in central WA. That is also the mouth of the Palouse River. Follow the Palouse upstream bout 3-5 miles and u will find Palouse Falls.

Does anyone want to run it Thursday the 29th of March? I would like to follow someone, or is the river pretty easy to read? I am springer fishing 26th thru the 28th. and headed back up the freeway it wouldn't be too much out of my way to run up there. Can't do it on the weekend either I'm currently on call (hoping to get out of it).

Tony, its kinda hard to tell what the flow is going to do any further out than 4 or 5 days. Even then, its just a prediction. If you watch the flows from the link I listed above you can plan things out a little bit. I might be available to run if flows allow on the 29th Ill know more as the time gets closer, and yea, its pretty readable at about 2500cfs to about 4000cfs. Good luck on the springers, where ya going? Bob

Does anyone ever run any stretches on the upstream side of the falls? I was driving through the town of Palouse today and imagining at these flows it would be easy. Just not sure of making it under bridge and railroad crossings, etc.

Bob, I'm heading down to Kalama/Longveiw area. Tips from fellow MC member. I have never done it before. Going to give it a try. Been buying stuff and reading a ton of information, to learn this boat fishing stuff. Its my 6yr olds spring break. So we are going to make the best of it.

I know of folks who have little sleds who play around on it. The biggest issue that I can think of is all the low bridges. YOu'd be hard pressed to find a long enough stretch to justify your time and effort. Also, where you gonna launch?

True. I cant really think of anywhere to put the boat in. Right now, you could put in at the town of Palouse. I'll bet you could run all the way to Colfax and back.

I'm having fuel delivery problems today when I ran it. Ran it up on 1 1/2 motors and down on just one. It is damn tough to run a twin working the port motor between 1200-1800 rpms, and the starboard 3400-3800 rpms. Basically bobbed down on one motor at @4800 cfs. Easy run, no stuff to speak of floating in the water.

On a side note. I had a buddy park my truck (absolutely the only one in the parking lot at Lions Ferry Marina). He didn't park between the lines, and the lady came out of the office and made him walk back to the truck and move it....It was the only vehicle there!!!!! Nice. :bs:

Sounds like she is running a "tight ship" in the parking lot. Or maybe she just got promoted to "lot attendant" :master:
Hope you get your gremlin figured out...
