    Se should be running fast and full.

    Latest Data
    02/15/2008 17:00 Central
    Latest Stage19.59 Ft.

    This is the last hours gauge reading, looks as if it maybe on the drop, as from 3 hours ago it has went down .9 feet, still should be running better than 1/2 bank and swift current? Let me know tomorrow what it was like and the time if you will, would like to check actual eyes on with what the gauges are reading? Good Luck, going for some eyes? they should be starting a pretty good bite soon!

    i would have to say considering the weather, the ramps are probably iced. i know the roads are and thats with the salt trucks.
    its supposed to be 50 and sunny sunday the 2nd. i would rather take my chances with that.

    I am going to agree with SHane on this one... it has to be a mess out there. Last weekend Carlyle was still pretty iced up on the water.. with those two or three low fronts that dumped al that ice, I am sure it is even more treacherous.

    Well if you don't have a big motor or don't mind trolling motor, you always have the power plant lakes. Coffeen in limited to 25 hp, and Baldwin is 50hp, just a thought.:wink:

    Went to Carlyle yesterday all the gates were open but releasing slowly, the water level was about 5ft below the treeline if you been there you know it's high. On the west side the water covered the sidewalk just south of the last porti-potty.The current wasn't all that bad 2oz was holding down pretty good, caught acouple using shad guts, punch bait.
