    Temps should be moving into a more favorable range by this weekend with cooler temps and more rain in the forecast.

    I'm saddened enough to not even view this link anymore because of its closure to happen in a few days. I've deleted the shortcut on my phone's screen about a month ago to break my religious habit of checking the conditions on a daily basis. :(

    They are supposed to be shutting down the gauge. No funds to maintain it. Was supposed to be shut down on 9/30 but as of today it is still on.

    Keep emailing Tom and let him know it is actually a valuable asset to have that gage running. From my understanding its for tracking possible flooding in an area and with some of them homes close to the river down stream could be valuable to the locals not to mention us fisherman for fishable waters.

    It's done now. To hurt even more, they took away the conditions from over the weekend. Lol.

    It's an APP called River APP for Apple. Doesn't matter now because the gauge at Flat Rock has been shut down.

    It is weird, but when I started fishing for Salmon, and Steelhead, nobody took water temps, and the internet did not exist for fishing reports. No cell phones 45 years ago, either. We went fishing whenever we could, and when catching wasn't great, the fishing still was. I didn't fish in a major metropolitan area, though.

    Here's the thing. Sure water temps matter, and photoperiod matters. But Salmon run the Big Manistee river (and others) when the temps are 70*-plus. Steelhead are sneaking into rivers right now, and most temps are still in the mid-60's.

    I learned a LOT about the rivers I fished, when I was searching for early-season Salmon, and Steelhead. I also came to appreciate the fact that Steelhead bite a lot better than Salmon, in the rivers.

    It's not exactly a necessity having the realttime river conditions at fingertips reach. It will not slow me down on fishing trips I take. A river gage is just another accessory, or tool to the arsenal. No different than having a range of methods to target specific fish or a vast selection of patterns and lures within your box. Putting all the pieces of the puzzle together and utilizing them to better your odds when the opportunity to fish comes along. The tools and gadgets make it a learning experience and make it fun.
