NEAR CLE ELUM, Wash. -- Two fishermen were rescued from the Yakima River Thursday after their boat became stuck in a log jam.

Kittitas County Sheriff's swift water team rescued the men around 8:45 p.m., below the State Route 970 boat launch near Cle Elum.

Brad Rorem, 48, of North Bend and his father John Rorem, 71, from Mercer Island were not hurt.

Deputies want to remind everyone how dangerous the rivers are and that personal floatation devices should be worn while on the water.
