Default Drought Conditions

I can't recall in recent times, the river being this low, this early. Looks like there was a draw down of some type by a town or farmers. 0.99 in June? If we don't get some rain, it will be a tough summer.

Not much chance of rain for the foreseeable future.

I have a hard time having success when its really low. I need to keep exploring to find the deeper holes.

Kankake got 5in. of rain. Water is up with a good amount of debris floating. I plan to go see if the cats are biting.

IIRC, the drought of 1988 was pretty severe. I remember seeing dead lawns that stayed dead as we went so long without rain.
