Oldman-Crowsnest-Castle-river report

Levels have dropped dramaticaly still lots of dirt in the system... Expect changes in all your rivers and streams .. if you float ..Bring A Chain Saw ! Clear water can be found in some head waters . Seek and Yee Shall Find  Brother .. Road Closures found on -line my be inaccurate.. Take a drive .. #40 from hwy #3 is not closed ..I drove it last night from the Oldman to our Fly Shop at 100 km per hr. in perfect shape ?? ..The bridge over the Oldman on the #40 might be closed  I don,t really know  what will be open for the weekend. The Oldman roared and peeked  the scale at 1000 cubic meters per second .. be carefull as some  new cut banks may just need your weight to collapse (nothing personal )..The Castle river is at normal level but holding some colour down stream . Crowsnest river is at OK levels (my basement is dry now)  but has some colour .. saw some PMD,s ... Herd from a T.U. guy that Hidden Creek may have colapsed after the clear cut logging done just before it probably been protected by the feds as a special Bull Trout spawning zone ? we will all see after the water clears. The lake fishing is all good down here ..we had some great pike fishing in the area recently .... Al B.
