NotesOkay, so the rocks that were blocking the current flow coming up the eddy are out of the way this year. That means this spot has a bit more kick than it used to. We had a blast last weekend at about 3600. This weekend it was at 4000 so we decided to wear full float PFDs for our first session. Excellent choice! Dale and I both got some of our deepest and longest rides ever!! With full flotation!! Never did take them off. Moral of the story...It\s good to test the waters before you jump in whole hog. Amazing what a difference those two rocks and a little more shoreline erosion can do... Have fun, be safe, sink lots. Stacy

NotesStacy and went back again (cant get enough) on Saturday. . . just the two of us. We were getting some of our best all time rides and roams. Backcuts seemed to initiate the elevator shaft to the bottom the easiest and quickest, but regular cuts would also get you down and often with a long travel. I wore a mask and watched the bottom race along beneath my boat, but did not actually touch the bottom (about 15 - 20 feet under the surface?). Started getting rides long enough that I could not get back into the upper eddy and had to retreat to the lower eddy and walk back up to the sink line. SUPER FUN, AND STOKE INDUCING! COME TO THE DIZZY-CUP! AUGUST 27-28, 2010! JUST FOR FUN!

NotesFrom previous trips thought it might be too high, but turns out that this years changes to the stream bed made it fantastic! Jon Rugh, Chris Fee, Stacy Karacostas, and Jeff Griswald all had very nice lines with some deep roaming. Jon and I both had some 13 - 15 second rides with smooth roaming down deep. Regular and backcuts resulted in great sinks - timing is important to hit the surge. Cant wait to go back again! (note: updated top flow range to 4400 - it may be good higher, but we know it is good at this level).

NotesCouldnt make the Weasel Rendevouz, so Chris, Stacy, and I headed to DZL. It has changed slightly. . . a large rock on the bank was freed from the bank and is now in the eddy. While this rock is underwater and is not a hazard, it did alter the flow into the squeeze. The squeeze is still there, but has shifted slightly towards the current a bit and is not as big. It took us a bit to figure out the new elevator shaft, but once found, it did not disappoint. I am hoping to go back at slightly lower flows to see if that changes anything. Otherwise, I am going to push that rock into the deep channel this winter when water levels drop. Note: the squeeze no longer sends you traveling downstream. there is the potential for a DEEP stationary ride on the downstream side of the wall. I went at least 15-20 ft down before releasing my edge and surfacing. Had I not released, i dont know how deep I would have gone, but I wasnt leveling off and I was still dropping fast.

NotesWent roaming with Stacy and Chris. Slightly higher levels from the last session. This is a fantastic level and I got the rides of my dreams! Finally, several consistently deep and smooth rides into the underworld. I was getting several 12 - 15 second rides! Beautiful realms below with fantastic water quality. Sorry, having too good of a time to get photos or video! But this is a GREAT level!

NotesChris Fee, Stacy, and I met up with Jeff Schnelle and headed to DZL. And as usual, it did not disappoint. 3200 seems to be an incredible level for fun safe and controlled roaming. As usual, it was sunny, warm, and had clear water to view the bubbles. All of the entries were working and everyone went deep. The elevator shaft, the pocket, the wedge, and the eddy line all provided ample opportunites to go deep. Jeff, of course, was the king! On his very first ride he went down down down down and had a good 12 - 15 sec. roam. Must have been good, because he continually repeated. Both Chris and Stacy had some long controlled rides as well and everyone was stoked about another fantastic day of getting dizzy at Dizzyland! Happy 4th of July indeed! Thanks for coming out with us Jeff! Hope to see you disappear again soon! note: guage is back to normal reading. The snowmelt from the Tieton is gone, so the guage is picking up the Yakima flow.

NotesThanks Weaver for the time with us at DZL. Here is what else I have learned to explain why it seemed so low yet the guages seemed to be at the right level . . . The Umtatum guage is below the confluence of the Yakima (river DZL is on) and the Tieton river. During the late summer when we first found DZL, we were only getting releases in the Yakima and the Tieton was nearly empty, so the levels being reported were basically 90 - 95% from the Yakima. Now, during snow melt, the guage is picking up all the additional outflow from the Tieton AND the flows from the Yakima. We will need to do some more exploring duing the Spring to determine the appropriate levels when the Tieton is adding more water to the guage reading. . . Just guessing, but maybe 60 - 65% of the guage would be about right for the Yakima during peak run-off?

NotesDale, Stacy and i hit it. Dizzyland is sick! has lots of things going for it: direct sun, dam controled, clear deep water, easy park and play, easy spectating. could easily hang out here for a long summer weekend and be content. took a little bit to figure it out, but then i was hitting it consistant in the 10-15sec range. the move that was working for me was a backcut, up high and tight by the rock. maybe more like 3500 is a more primo all around level. dizzyland is SICK. thanks dale and stacy for sharing it with me :)

NotesEric and I hit Dizzy today. The eddy is slower and the boils smaller but we both got great rides. Eric was consistently disappearing. You could actually sit in the bottom of the eddy and rest between rides. We pulled the van right up to the eddy and cranked reggae while we boated. Sun, tunes, beers, and one kick ass squirt spot! What a great day! Dale, Stacy, Jeff, Eric, and I are headed back tomorrow. 5 weekends in a row!!! Chris
