Ok, well keep me posted. I'm still trying to figure out what my weekend plans are, but if I'm in town I'd be game to run it.

If it's still got water in it, I'm interested in a Sat AM run.

Couple of us planning on running Pilchuck tomorrow.

If there's enough water we'll run the upper and middle. If its much below 1000 we'll just run the middle section. If it drops a lot more (below 600) we'll cancel. I'll check the gauge in the AM. I'll update here at 8AM if the plan changes.

Meet at the takeout bridge at 10AM.

Cool... keep your fingers crossed for good flows.

I'm excited to run the Pil on a sunny 60+ degree day.

Has that happened before? Ever??

Just checked flow. Plan is still for 10AM at takeout. Looks like there will be enough water for the middle run, but probably not upper. Will check flow visually at takeout.

The Pilly's got water today! Looks like lowish, but in, at least for the middle section.

Anyone game to rally out for a run this evening?

There is a huge cell about to move over the lake cavanaugh area...might be worth it after all.  A bump a the put in would be nice.  I'll know shortly if I'm interested.

I'm game. I was just on it a week ago at 1000cfs. More water = more better. I'd need a ride from Seattle though.
