Tanker crash

Almost in the river

tandem tanker

This accident happened early this afternoon on    

the curve just west of Thompson’s corner. I found out the tanker was empty. Hard to tell how much fuel from the trucks fuel tanks leaked into the river. There might not have been any at all. This is a bad corner where several accidents have happened. The guard rail was sheared off like they were match sticks.

The river seems to have leveled off at 4400 cfs and is dropping a bit. Cool conditions are forecast for this weekend so I doubt there will be anyof the big bugs.
Fisherman  I talked to today said the fishing was fair.


  1. Based on the lack of updates and the dropping river conditions, I would imagine the fishing has been getting better.
    Looking forward to summer, last day with the school children today!!!

  2. We passed on thursday when wreckers crews were pulling the trailer out. I can’t beleive the truck did not make it into the river! Incredible!

    Fished up by Wisdom on the way through. First time up that high. Water was up. No luck but it was fun on a new piece.
