Those of us who fish the Columbia River know how important that current plays into a successful day of fishing. I try to avoid fishing on the weekends on the river as typically, this is when flows are low, and fishing is slow. It has always been frustrating, as we don’t know what kind of flows to expect until we reach our fishing destination. Well, there’s some great news. Chelan County PUD has created an app that when downloaded to your phone, will tell you what the flows and river levels are at their two facilities: Rock Island Dam and Rocky Reach Dam. I got the app and it took just a couple of minutes to get in loaded onto my phone. Once there it was easy to navigate the app and find out what the cfs was above each dam. There are other features, such as descriptions of the launch sites near the dams and water temperatures. Just open the Chelan PUD web site and under the Parks and Recreation menu you will find a link to River Conditions and you can install the app. This a great tool for those of us who fish, boat, jet ski or kayak near these Columbia River facilities.
