Bitterroot air temperatures have been in the high 80’s for the last three days and the snow melt is increasing the river flows. The air temperatures are supposed to drop in the next few days and rain is predicted next week. This will be interesting.
Here are some photos at Victor Crossing taken the afternoon of May 16.
Victor Crossing is about 5 miles upriver from the USGS water data gauge
at Bell Crossing and about 40 road miles down river (north) of the USGS
water data gauge at Darby. Below are photos of the river at Victor
Bridge, the charts for both gauges, and a snow pack map.
