Stream Conditions

Post by brntrout »

With the recent rain stream conditions will probably vary from fish-able to off color and slightly high. I would say most streams will be in some sort of fish-able condition by the weekend except possibly the largest streams/rivers. I'm thinking our spring caddis hatches are not quite done yet but probably will be some time late next week depending on the streams one fishes.

There was a weather/rainfall link posted on this site last year that was pretty neat - zoom in capabilities and showed rainfall totals from anywhere from a day to the last three months. I don't have it bookmarked. Anyone have it or one that I am describing?

This probably not what your referring too but it does show what we got for rain recently.

I like to use the riverflows.net application on my phone. You can create a list of favorites, Don't have all the rivers but it does have some of the major rivers.

From what I saw this morning (WW system and Garvin Brook) Conditions will be good by the weekend and good right now.

Stream conditions for the weekend should be good on short small streams but may be a little dirty on large ones like South Br Root. The larger the stream the more likely it will be less fish-able.

South Branch Root in the Forrestville area was clear on Saturday.
