Gazette TV writer Andy Wineke and his kayaking pals may be headed to California, Oregon and Washington, where river runners predict a strong and long season, according to The Associated Press.

In Oregon, precipitation has been above average, and the snow pack in April was 36 percent above normal, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service of the United States Department of Agriculture. Snowpacks also are above or well above average in the southern Cascades of Washington, southern Idaho, a portion of southwest Montana and a portion of northern Colorado.. Streamflow forecasts are also above average in northern Utah, southern and western Wyoming, northern Nevada and the Sierras of California.
