All This Rain - River Report

I took this photo at 6pm last night on the East Branch while the river was humming along at 1800cfs!!!! It dropped like a stone overnight and through this morning but has now (4pm) registered a click upward. It will be roaring tomorrow morning.

The Swift is near 600cfs. The "pipe" is underwater and the water temp is 68 degrees thanks to the overflow at the spillway. Forget about this place for a while.

The Millers was actually dropping at a slow rate but I'm sure that it's watershed will not escape the rain.

I've never seen conditions like this especially for two summers in a row. Drought scares me the most and I usually pray for rain but certainly not this much. Last year things dried out in August. Let's hope for the same.

Could be a great late Summer and Fall. But then I'm a glass half full kind of a guy.

You are right about a great late Summer and Fall. August, September and October are my favorite months on the Millers! As long as it stays fairly dry!!
