Default River condition

I was looking at the usgs gage. Did the river really come up another foot from last week? Thinking about getting out on thurs again.

no sense wasting your time with those conditions as well as your life. it ain't that serious. i got the itch to get to the river also but God willing we can get a break with the weather so the river can get back down.
