West Branch : 296 cfs
East Branch : 585
Mainstem : 1,220
Last year right before the One Bug in April the flows were the following
West Branch : around 7,860
East Branch : around 11,400
Mainstem : over 22,800
So it was scary low today. We need a nice steady rain that lasts a few days. Top off the reservoirs, put some water on the tops of the mountains, and put some volume in the river system.
I spoke with Joe D yesterday and things were going off and in swing a month early. I saw some other posts on my Facebook page today that described yesterday chilly and windy day as "epic"- that's a strong word but it must have been some day.

One of my main reasons for going up to grab my drift boat and bring it back home to give it a good cleaning, inventory check, and test run before the float trips start. Looks like it will be mostly lower West Branch and Mainstem floats this year. It might be time to set up the pontoon boat.
