The rain out west by Granite I was told was from 3-5 inches. That will make something go up.

I don't know about a foot... the ground is so dry that it might soak up a lot of the precip.

Then again it could be so dry and hard that the majority just runs off into the rivers

Unfortunately it looks like this wasn't a drop in the bucket. We need a few days of rain and some steady rain.

Looks like it's that time of year to do a rain dance.

I'll start.

The river sure could use a few more feet. Its getting a little hairy getting around at night. Lots of deadheads, and many spots at 2 foot.

and to think it still needs to come down a few feet to match last years low levels.

But, we didn't hit anything last night Scott. Thanks for a good evening on the river even if the fish did not cooperate that well.

Ya but I think last year wasnt a normal low summer, I think it was a little lower then average lows!

Thanks Tom for being captain last night and getting us back home safe in the fog and low waters. I think after that experience, my boat might have to go to the lake for the first time this year! Unless we can add a few more feet to the water level, I dont forsee me taking my boat out. Looks like I will be doing a little more shore fishing now cry

Yes, I can't go in much shallower water and still be safe. My prop looks like it has been through the 3rd world war and if it gets any shallower, I won't float.

That water can just keep on droppin'. The lower the better for Aug. 8th. if myself and Aanderud are going to find a spot to fish amongst the chaos.
