I talked with a customer of mine this morning who has a close friend who is the fisheries biologist in the Missoula area. The low flows and the high water temps on many streams and rivers throughout the state are breaking records that have stood for one hundred and thirteen years. His friend told him of being able to easily cross rivers that normally you would never attempt to wade across. Missoula hasn't had rain scince the first of May and is in day twelve of over one hundred degree temps. I've seen the list of closures across the state, but the worst news may be yet to come. The biologist told him that they are very worried that big fish kills are going to happen soon. Lots of rain and cooler temps are the only thing that will give some relief. I know several people on this board spend time there, so let's all hope this situation abates before very long.
