    Shows water level will be at 22.6 by tomorrow morning and if I am correct they close the area at Maple Island at either 22.0 or 22.5 ft. you might be able to launch but the water is still on the rise so you might get a little water in you truck if you fish all day..Saturday evening shows to be up around 24.0ft.. and rising...

    I flew over Maple Island this afternoon. The ramp is definitely unusable. An if the sippi looks anything like the merramec river it's gonna be a mess. You could just about walk across the merramec on all the trash today.

    I went and looked at the river right before dark in herculaneum. You can't even pull down the hill to the bank. There is MAJOR tree's floating around. :eek:oooh: I would use caution!
