This is where I attempt to NOT sound like a broken record. However, screw whomever is in charge of the releases on this river. We’ve just been cut back to 325 CFS (which at least is according to “plan”) from 476. This will definitely make things a bit sluggish to start, but there are clouds predicted all day, which can do nothing but help us. The forecasted Tornado Watch is not my favorite, but I will definitely believe that when I see it. Honestly, rain in any form is a good thing. Last night was definitely slow, but the Stenos made an appearance, which definitely makes me happy on the inside – let’s hope that continues, and everyone busts loose prior to the “severe” weather heading our way.

Although they are still around, the flying ants have been a hard hatch to catch so far this year. Photo by: Jeff White
