Finally got to posting the stage correlations between water level and CMS flows for the Ash River in Port Alberni. What a jem! Also let out the reservoir spill level secret I’ve been guarding so jealously for two years now! You can find it all in the Upper Ash write up.
Got to paddle the Ash twice in the past while and it continues to thrill me. That lake ramp is just a hoot to run, and the higher flows we had this past weekend put this run easily into the 5 star range of quality. The only down side in a bit of flat water for 2 km after the lake start, and the longer shuttle needed for this run.
With our snow pack, this river will be running into July for sure.
