Yep...after a little delay, they are now drawing it down.nsselle said:I dont think its the rain that caused the water level to rise. The must have let the water go from the chain because its really moving. good luck tonight let me know how you did.
The gates were adjusted on the 6th and again on the 10th. Today they cut it back a bit. Adjustments to gate height are always done during the day and usually in the morning. Not sure why it would of come up last night??Cranked said:I haven't looked yet but I'm guessing it opened up a little more between 9 n 10 last night? I was out there with a friend and we thought we could feel the current get a little stronger.
The area I'm thinking about runs close to fast current but it's a pretty decent size trough that runs about 4 ' deep. That should be deep enough I hope. I don't know of many areas that are deeper then that on a consistent basis that also has some faster current along side. It's always a learning experience out there for me!JB. Wherever you go make sure it has deep water that has a slower current.
I actually don't pay much attention to the USGS gauges anymore. We have a guage at work that measures surface elevation and that one is the only one I trust to be 100% accurate. We take a reading once a day and it showed the river level staying pretty constant between yesterday and today. This is in Elgin....That doesn't necessarily mean that wherever you were fishing the river didn't come up slightly. Who knows?Cranked said:[/b]
Now that I look at it again it does look like there was a little spike around that time last night. Maybe I'm not that crazy.
Could you look at that WaterGuy and tell me if I'm reading that right?
I'm looking at Algonquin. Do they adjust Algonquin at different times maybe?
