As we thought yesterday, the water definitely cleared up, but certainly did not drop significantly. The West Branch at Hale has been holding steady around 3,000 cfs since yesterday morning, and looks to be doing the same for the day today. The amount of water coming over the dam is gradually increasing as the big push from Walton makes its way down. This will settle as the weekend progresses, and we will start to see the flow decrease in a more normal manner. That being said, if you have a boat, now is a GREAT time to head out with streamers. It was a pretty decent day out on the West yesterday, and with the clarity improving, it can only get better today.
