Please exercise patience and stay safe!

Posted on August 13 2018

All rivers in the system are too high to wade safely.  Both reservoirs are maxing out their releases and Pepacton is still spilling.  If the predicted rain amounts (almost another 1.5 inches) arrive both reservoirs will be spilling by Wednesday.  Because they have maxed out the releases, even the water up near the dams is too high to safely wade.

Drift boaters are in heaven with no waders to have to go around.  But even drift boaters need to exercise caution at current water levels as the swift currents can lead to tragedy should a boat flip or take on water and sink.  If you're new at handling a drift boat it would be a good idea to leave it on the trailer 'til flows subside.  Fishermen with personal flotation devices should also find something else to do as a dunking in full fishing gear at current water flows would be a life threatening event.

Believe me, I am more anxious than most to get back in the river but with a flash flood watch posted again today it's clearly not safe.  Stay tuned, when it's time to go, I'll let you know.
