Warmer weather will get more boaters out on the water, but Nate Thompson with the Clackamas County River Patrol says the deep snow pack means rivers will be running fast and cold. “As the weather warms up, the water may not warm up as quickly. And so remember that swimming the in springtime or being around rivers in the springtime may be dangerous because of the cold, fast moving water.” Drinking alcohol and swimming can also be very dangerous, because the alcohol makes your body more susceptible to the cold. And Thompson says boaters need to make sure they have a designated driver.
