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.

    • I snuck out after work and  heard 5 flushes. Heard but still too many leaves to see anything to shoot at. But I agree that if this any indication, we’re in for a better bird season than last year
    • I agree.  Mustered is the only way to go on a burger!  😋
    • Here's how most of my Hunting and Fishing goes! 🤪  😆      
    • Good to see your report Dusty. I'll be headed up that way in a couple of weeks.
    • @Abndoc I hope your conversation with the Landowner goes well.   In my experience, the 85 year old landowner truly DOES believe there’s enough land for the two hunters and couldn’t possibly think of a reason why it wouldn’t be.  A 50 year old will always be a kid in her eyes but she may not have even met him personally.  He could be a friend’s or even a friend of a friend’s “kid”.  This is a remnant if the good old days of getting private land access.   Modern deer hunting teaches us to have as much control over as much ground as we can to be more successful, so some people really forget their place as a guest of the true landowner ( I know you’ve been around long enough to know this).    I’ve  personally seen these situations go both ways:  The landowner finds out there’s a conflict and either kicks the 50 year old out for being a Dick or kicks the 2nd hunter out, feeling bad that they [PoorWordUsage]ed off the first hunter.  It’s crazy!   I think you’re handling it pretty well since the season has started.  Let her know and let her decision be the final word, without pressure from you.  BUT encourage your boy to be the FIRST person to knock on her door before next season starts!  Then he can tell the 51 year old to [PoorWordUsage] off! 😁
    • Could you summarize for those us with a non video learning style?  Or you just looking for clix?
    • Hey what's wrong with katchup on a burger???🤕
    • I've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw
