    want To fish the tippy dam area this Sunday. Think it will be fishable with all the rain and snow that has fallen?

    Water level at Big Manna didn't go up much.

    I haven't looked at the river lately, but I figured it would be up with all of this lovely weather. Kinda surprised. But then again We have lost all our snow two or three times this year so it hasn't been one big melt off.

    It was basically at 1900 CFS went up to 3500 CFS and has nose dived to about 2500 CFS already. Cold run off dropped temp from 40.5 to 39.25. Another day and it’ll be back down to 2000 CFS I bet.

    The recent snow is going to start melting, there was/is a lot of it.

    Water is stained and up less than a foot today. I don’t think the runoff from this storm will ever make it unfishable unless we get a rain event. The snow has settled quite a bit already.
