How has the weather been down that way? Do you guys know anyplace online to check flow levels? I'm hoping to get out saturday, but its been raining a lot up here (Canton), so I'm assuming the same there, in which case the river is probably unfishable.

The last report that the Mad River Outfitters has listed is a week old and is outdated. But the creeks around here are starting to get muddy.

 

We have had about an inch of rain this week but the water is not out of its banks yet. It does not look like they are calling for anymore rain until Saturday night.

 

The history of the River is that it clears up rather quickly so there may be the possiblity that the River just might be OK come Saturday.

 

Good Luck to you. wink.gif

I am hoping to be out the tomorrow around noon.

 

I am planning on trying some of these streamers I have been tying the last couple of days. I do not know if any of these streamers already have a name for them or not. These are unweighted streamer and this is going to be my first outing with them.

 

It seems for the last couple of weeks the Doctor appointments have been getting in my way for getting out there. They are trying again tomorrow but it will be an early morning for them so my afternoon is mine. wink.gif

Man what a great day to get out.....lucky you!

I have to admit that it was a nice day, but I would much rather have a cloudy day. wink.gif But like they say, "Beggers can't be choosey."

This is the website of the miami valley flyfishers. It has good info. on the Mad as well as a link to a site that has supposedly "up to the minute" accuracy on water levels/flow. when you get to the website, go to the section labeled "local waters".
