Boaters and others should watch out for floating debris in the Snake and Columbia rivers as dam operators spill water to float logs and smaller woody debris away from powerhouses.

High spring flows swept debris into streams and tributaries to be carried into the river.
Avoid areas with lots of debris and make sure everyone is wearing a life jacket, says the Corps.
