Sand Bar Rescue

Posted on 2nd August 2013 at 16:08

A 63 year-old Longview man is safe and dry this morning, after he got stuck on a sand bar in the middle of the Cowlitz River. The man’s wife called 911 shortly after 11 am, saying that he’d been fly fishing near the Imboden Boat Launch, but he couldn’t get back across the river, because the current was too strong. Deputies responded to the scene, along with Cowlitz Fire District 6 in Castle Rock. They found the man, and were able to get a small boat into the river. The man was rescued shortly before noon; he was unhurt.
