I made it down to Waneta last night.  With the heat wave this past week the surface temps were between 83°F and 86°F!  It doesn't look like there will be any relief today with highs in the low 90s.

No problem with winds at Waneta.  It was decemt weather. A little sprinke in AM then cloudy to partly cloudy. 12 anglers, one low 30s fish. Eddie got a couple for his clients but they were not  in the tourney.
