My concern is there have been no cataclysmic events on either river to provide sediment replenishment. I feel most of the sediment has been transported down the White Salmon River since the dam blew in 2011 and the Elliot Glacier event was around 2005. Neither river is very high. We are getting lots timber debris from the shorelines of all 3 rivers. A friend Supping on the Wa. side yesterday, reported the fishing bench is under 2 feet of water and all of the sand has been scoured away where we used to walk. He mentioned that the entire bar has drifted to the west.
