2000 cfs at Akers?


Recommended Posts

There was a ton of rain all the way down the I44 corridor and south last night. Wouldn't doubt it with all the snow melt from the last few weeks to go with it. Ground is pretty saturated.

Was on the Little Piney today at 330-310 (start and finish flows), and that was about as much water as I want to wade (hard to fish, as well). 2000 cfs is a lot of water to do anything on, but nowhere near a record flood.

Keep your dries high, your nymphs down, and your line wet. And remember, it's all about the drift.

Don't know if you fellas ever use this map, but it's very useful for checking stage trends by drainage basin. A quick glance will show you what areas are above or below average flow. Plus, you can mouse over each gage and get the current GHt/cfs, and click on it to go to that page.

What you have to remember is that it is the highest flow recorded for that DATE in the years of record....and since there are only 13 years of records, it's probably far from the highest ever for that date as well. 2000 cfs is a lot of water, but a real flood in that part of the river would be up above 5000 cfs.
