I have had feedback on my prior comment about the Salmon Complex fires keeping river temperatures low.  I wanted to clarify the following:

1.  I personally do not know this to be a fact.  

2.  Others refute the statement.

3.  The comment is attributed to Mike Belchik of the Yurok Tribe was quoted in minutes of the August 15, 2013 teleconference of the Klamath Fish Habitat Assessment Team that temperatures were a couple of degrees lower than normal due to the fires.  You can access those meeting highlights at: http://kbmp.net/images/stories/pdf/KFHAT/Meetings/August_15_2013_Meeting_Highlights.pdf 

I apologize for any misunderstandings.
